This site offers general background about winter storms as well as interactive activities to teach visitors about these storms. It also offers a teachers guide to using this site and links to other weather-related pages. There are four main topics: All About Winter Storms, Interactive Weather Maker, Interactive Winter Storm Timeline, and Ask Our Winter Storm Expert. All About Winter Storms gives general background information an a glossary of weather terms. The Weather Maker offers students a chance to control the weather through a simulation in which they affect the weather by changing variables such as humidity, equatorward temperature, and polarward temperature. The Storm Timeline offers students a chance to move up and down the timeline to learn about past winter storms. In Ask the Expert, students can email their questions to a winter storm expert and have them answered. This section also gives a brief biography of the expert.
