Usually no precipitation falls from stratus clouds.
When a thick fog "lifts," the resulting clouds are low stratus.
Low level clouds.
Nimbostratus form a dark gray color.
These clouds often appear to be wet.
They are associated with continuously falling rain or snow.
The precipitation they produce is usually light or moderate.
Altocumulus are middle level clouds.
They are made of water droplets, and appear as grey puffy masses.
They appear in parallel waves or bands.
The appearance of these clouds on a humid summer day, usually means thunderstorms will later be occurring.
Middle level clouds.
Appear as grey, or blue-grey clouds.
Made of ice crystals and water droplets.
Usually cover the entire sky.
Sun may be visible through thinner parts of cloud.
Often formed ahead of storms that will have continuous precipitation.
High level clouds.
Thin and wispy in appearance.
Blown into streamers by high winds.
Usually move across the sky from west to east.
Generally mean pleasant weather.
Very fluffy clouds.
Base is usually a straight line.
Clouds may sometimes only be 330 feet above the ground.
Grow from the bottom up.
May later develop into a thunderstorm cloud.
Form when cumulous clouds continue to form vertically
Dark bases maybe no higher than 300 feet above the ground.
Lightning, thunder, and even violent tornadoes are associated with the cumulonimbus.
Adding and subtracting!
Adding Count the number of red stars. Now, count the number of blue stars. How many stars are there altogether?
Mathematic equation Now, were going to write this problem as a mathematic equation. The formula is “Number of red stars + Number of blue stars = Total number of stars There were 3 red stars, and 2 blue stars. There were 5 stars altogether The mathematic equation is 3+2 = 5
Adding Count the number of trees Count the number of trees on this side. On this side.
Now, count how many trees there are all together.
Now write this as a math equation
5 trees + 1 tree = 6 trees
Subtracting Count the number of cows Now take 1 cow away How many cows are left?
The formula for this mathematic equation is:
“Number of cows at first (minus) the number of cows being taken away (equals) The ending number of cows”
There were 3 cows to start, and we took one away.
In the end, there were two cows left.
3 – 1 = 2
Subtracting Count the number of yellow smiley faces. Take 2 of the smiley faces away. How many faces are now left? Write this as a math equation. 5 – 2 = 3
