||A true resource chapter about weather
||Reviewed by: Susan German (Hallsville, MO) on May 28, 2012
||Don't let the 130 pages fool you. The first 20 or so describes how to use the resource book. Once you get past the "how to" there are several suggested activities related to weather. The materials are simple, the suggestions are clear. In all, a well written resource chapter.
