Weather is a high-interest topic for children because it's all around us every day and often affects our activities. Rain may put a damper on outdoor activities or even offer an irresistible opportunity to splash in puddles. Snow means snowmen and snowball fights. 

Severe weather such as storms, hurricanes and tornadoes may be fascinating to study, but frightening to experience.
