When earth scientists or mini meteorologists are learning about wind, they can participate in an engineering activity in which they will design and construct an anemometer. A thorough overview of different types of anemometers is included for learners to read, making this a way to address Common Core State Standards for scientific literacy in addition to meeting several Next Generation Science Standards. The publisher doesn't mention it, but the reading material can be used to address standards for scientific literacy!
