Weather Wiz Kids

Name:Weather Wiz Kids

Brief Description of the Site:
Meteorologist Crystal Wicker, of WVUE-TV in New Orleans, Louisiana designed this site about weather for children to use. The site offers educators, parents and children a chance to learn about weather in a variety of ways that even a young child can understand.

How to use the site:
Young students can find weather experiments, weather safety, careers, radar, the tropics, a section called "The Comfort Zone", and more weather links. Children are invited to submit weather related artwork, learn about weather related careers, and even ask Crystal questions. Weather Wiz Kids is clearly keyed into literacy through its presentation of weather folklore, weather words, and weather jokes.
