Background For Teachers:
Even though this may seem obvious, students need to understand that water can change from a liquid to a solid (ice).You may want to briefly touch upon this concept prior to teaching this lesson.
You should know the meaning of each of these key vocabulary words:
Some of these definitions may be different from what you think. 'When we start naming the different kinds of ice, confusion begins. Scientists don't always agree on the names....But the official guide for United States weather observers has different descriptions. Neither set of definitions uses the common word 'sleet,' which is defined differently in various parts of the English-speaking world. In the United State, 'sleet' refers to frozen raindrops, or ice pellets.' (Williams, Jack. The Weather Book, p. 103. New York, Vintage Books (1992)).
More information about precipitation and its types can be found at the University of Illinois Online Meterology Guide.
