    e. Investigate different forms of precipitation and sky conditions. (rain, snow, sleet, hail, clouds, and fog).
    Hands-on Investigations
    Frosty the Snowcan - (S4E3e) - This investigation helps students discover how frost forms. http://portal.acs.org/portal/PublicWebSite/education/whatischemistry/scienceforkids/planetearth/air/CSTA_015052
    Cool It or Pool It (S4E3a) - This activity investigates if making water vapor colder can change its state from a gas to a liquid. http://portal.acs.org/portal/PublicWebSite/education/whatischemistry/scienceforkids/planetearth/water/CSTA_015085
    How Do You Dew? (S4E3a,d) - The purpose of this activity is to provide students with a hands-on experience of seeing how the processes of condensation and evaporation occur. http://www.uen.org/Lessonplan/preview.cgi?LPid=11082

    Rock Cycle - Rock Cycle is an interactive Web site where students can learn all about rocks and geology, the science of rocks. They will learn how rocks can be identified, how they are formed, and how they change over time. Students will identify the three major kinds of rocks and learn how to tell them apart. They will also discover how the different types of rocks are formed. Students will learn what kind of changes can happen to rocks, and about the processes that cause these changes. (S3E1.b)

    Earth and Beyond- Engineering Interact (S4E2 a, c) - The online interactives explores the day/night cycle and the revolution of the earth around the sun and the earth's tilt to explain seasonal changes in individual learning modules.
    http://www.engineeringinteract.org/resources/astroadventure/flash/concepts/earth.htm The game, Astro Adventure, combines all of the learning module concepts from The Solar System and Earth and Beyond so students have to apply the information to help solve the mystery. http://www.engineeringinteract.org/resources/astroadventure/astroadventurelink.htm
    Planets in Relative Size - This site is in two parts. First, there are images that show how big the planets are when compared to each other and the sun. Second, images of each planet is linked to a separate page comparing it to the size of the Earth. (S4E2d)
