NSTA Recommends What is Lightning?

Have you ever wondered what causes lightning? Why are there different types of lightning? Through beautiful photographs and easy to understand context, Ellen Lawrence explains how this natural wonder is created.

Included is a beautiful image of lightning from the viewpoint of astronauts in space. The author also illustrates how to determine how far away the storm is by counting the seconds in between the flash and the sound of thunder. Safety precautions are mentioned as well as the purpose of lightning rods on buildings. There is a mini–lab investigating static electricity and photographs of a science word wall. This is a great resource for any weather unit.
