Over 8,000 websites created by students around the world who have participated in a ThinkQuest Competition.
The web page we created gives information about weather.
We explained how weather conditions such as fog, rainbows,
hail, clouds, and rain occurred. We researched thunder and
lightning, cyclones, hurricanes, typhoons, and tornadoes and
wrote about them in a section called storms. El Nino and the
Greenhouse Effect were also explained. In fact, we tried to
explain what happened during the Greenhouse Effect by
creating a hand-drawn diagram. We created a hand-drawn
weather map and explained what a cold front, warm front, and
a stationary front were. We talked about some simple
weather instruments. We interviewed a meteorologist and
recorded his answers on one of the web pages.
