In this book, descriptions of cloud types are combined with analogies related to cloud shapes and are acted out by the GLOBE Kids. Activities give students the opportunity to describe the shape and appearance of cumulus clouds and learn the types of weather that are associated with cumulus clouds. They identify cloud types using cloud classification names and explore the three types of contrails.
