Winter Wonderland - Winter Olympics and the Water Cycle

After a concise introduction to the water cycle, junior meteorologists access NOAA's average snowfall data. They choose a city to examine in terms of precipitation. Then they look at historical snowfall data and use it to predict snow supply for the Winter Olympics. This lesson plan was written before the 2006 games, but as long as you know where the next Winter Olympic Games will be held, you can still employ it in your class.
