Recognize that clouds have different characteristics that relate to different weather conditions.
Describe how weather variables (i.e., temperature, wind speed, wind direction, and precipitation) are observed and measured.
Explain and illustrate evaporation and condensation
Identify basic cloud types (i.e., cirrus, cumulus, stratus, and cumulonimbus) and make connections to basic elements of weather (e.g., changes in temperature, precipitation).
Identify weather patterns from data charts or graphs of the data (e.g., temperature, wind direction, wind speed, cloud types, precipitation).
