  • Activity #2 - CloudsDO THIS: Part 2.4 Now that you know more about cloud types and cloud cover, go back to your picture for both Day 1 and Day 2. Fill in the Cloud Type and Cloud Cover sections. You can look at the wall poster or the Globe resources if you need to review. Part 2.1 Each day you will compare the picture from online to the pictures of clouds foundthe cloud type site, other websites or possibly from a cloud poster found on a wall nearby. The following activities will help you in your interpretation of both Cloud Type and Cloud Cover. Your answer could indicate multiple types of clouds, no clouds or an obscured view of the sky (because of fog for example).Part 2.2 Go to the Globe Video page and watch the Cloud Cover and Cloud Type video. (down a few videos in list)Part 2.3 Take a tour of the Globe Cloud Types and then try the cloud quiz. Note: Your mark for cloud identification and cloud cover types will be based on your daily entry. Paying attention here will make that task easier. Wikipedia Encarta Online Jetstream Weather School Globe Atmosphere Chapter Weather Doctors Cloud Atlas Meteorological Service of CanadaClouds are an important part of weather. The type and amount of cloud cover can give an indication of what weather to expect. Your daily cloud photo and interpretation of it are important.A Note about the Globe Site: Globe is a program for schools to record and submit information collected about a wide range of environmental topics. You can disregard the information about how to report your data. The Weather Station will help you collect your information. Also, while the Globe videos you will watch feature younger students, the information is still relevant to you and your learning.If you get confused, review the cloud Cover and Type video.
