I am a student assigned to contribute a member comment. I have spent about
twenty minutes browsing Clouds and Precipitation. I found the information to be
educationally significant, as it follows NYS standards. It was a fun way to
introduce clouds that could be used with upper elementary and older students.

to the information it said it would. The site also had an easy to follow
directory on the left hand side and could be used for additional lessons on
