|Why does it thunder mostly in the summer? How does hail form? What’s the difference between a storm “watch” and a storm “warning”? How can we help protect watersheds? Weather and climate impact our daily lives, piquing children’s curiosity in the world around them.|
Welcome to The Weather Channel Kids website – a resource that encourages children to deepen their understanding of the world around them through fun, age-appropriate online experiences centered on weather and climate. As a parent, you want online experiences for children to be both meaningful and safe. The website provides that environment AND captures The Weather Channel’s expertise and passion for all things weather!
|Weather influences what we wear and what we do. The Weather Channel Kids gives children the opportunity to find out their daily weather forecast. How they use that information – such as how much leeway they have to determine what they wear and what they do will all depend, right?!|
|And it should come as no surprise that you and your child can depend on The Weather Channel Kids for engaging education on weather and climate. WeatherED is where you need to go for a number of different resources such as the Weather Encyclopedia.|
|It may seem funny to think about the fact that an online environment provides the opportunity to safely explore just about any environment. The Weather Channel Kids contains games and interactive learning resources for children to play games, experience simulations, and solve problems – all while having fun in the process!|
|If you’re thinking that virtually all of the activities for The Weather Channel Kids are virtual, you might be surprised to find out that the Let’s Play section spotlights numerous hands-on activities tied to the time of year. The seasonal suggestions include both things to do inside and outside.|
|We want to point out that the suggestions extend strongly to classroom curricula. The Weather Channel Kids has an extensive and growing collection of free resources for educators that serve the extensive and growing community of educators!|
|So as you can see … the forecast couldn’t be better! The Weather Channel Kids will continue to evolve and add content and experiences to capture children’s curiosity and meet the needs of educators. We encourage you to tap into the kid in you, and oh yeah, to explore the website with the kid(s) in your home throughout the year!|
