In this activity, students watch a short slide show presentation explaining what precipitation is and how clouds form.
By the end of this activity, students should be able to:
- explain what precipitation is and how water vapour is transported and concentrated in the atmosphere
- describe how water appears as different phases in the air – vapour, droplets and ice particles
- explain that clouds are mixtures of droplets and ice particles and that this mixture changes with temperature.
