How Humans Can Affect Weather
By Jane Runyon
  

1     "Today we are going to discuss weather and climate," began Mrs. Kim. "Can anyone tell me the difference between weather and climate?"
 
2     No one in the class seemed to know how to answer that question. Mrs. Kim tried another question.
 
3     "What if I were to ask you what the weather outside is like today. What would your answer be?" she asked.
 
4     Josh was quick to hold up his hand. "It is sunny and warm today," he said. "But yesterday it was rainy and a little cooler."
 
5     "So, when you are telling me about the weather, you are telling me the conditions at that particular time. Now, what is the climate like in Hawaii?" she continued.
 
6     "We just studied Hawaii," answered Maddie. "We found out that it is warm and sunny most of the time."
 
7     "Exactly," said Mrs. Kim. "The climate of an area is the type of weather they have over an extended period of time."
 
8     Mrs. Kim walked over to her work table. On the table was a big glass jar. "We're going to create weather inside this jar," she said.
 
9     "Rain and snow come from the sky," said C.J. "How can you make weather in a jar?"
