iKnowthat.com: Weather Maker

This tool is useful for teaching weather concepts. Adjust the temperatures of tropical and polar air masses and the value of the relative humidity, and then choose which air mass is moving, to see what the effect is on the weather. Students can record their observations as they explore this tool, and try to replicate the weather using different values. Follow-up research can be done to learn why the weather patterns that they observe occur.
