Blog de 1º/ First Grade Weather Wiz Kids weather information for kids Winter StormsHow do winter storms form?Winter storms derive their energy from the clash of two air masses of different temperatures and moisture levels. Winter storms usually form when an air mass of cold, dry, Canadian air moves south and interacts with a warm, moist air mass moving north from the Gulf of Mexico. The point where these two air masses meet is called a front. How is snow formed? How do blizzards form? What are snowflakes? Why is snow white? What is thundersnow? What is an ice storm?

The Book Chook Herbivores - Learn about animals that are herbivores! Kid's Corner Sheppard Software Animal Diet Game Test what you've learned about herbivores, carnivores and omnivores in our game The Energy Story - Introduction Energy is one of the most fundamental parts of our universe. We use energy to do work. Energy lights our cities. Energy powers our vehicles, trains, planes and rockets. Energy from the sun gives us light during the day. Everything we do is connected to energy in one form or another. Energy is defined as: "the ability to do work." When we eat, our bodies transform the energy stored in the food into energy to do work. Cars, planes, light bulbs, boats and machinery also transform energy into work. Work means moving something, lifting something, warming something, lighting something. There are many sources of energy. The forms of energy we will look at include: Electricity Biomass Energy - energy from plants Geothermal Energy Fossil Fuels - Coal, Oil and Natural Gas Hydro Power and Ocean Energy Nuclear Energy Solar Energy Wind Energy Transportation Energy You can start with Chapter 1: Energy - What Is It?
