One of the first grade topics that is covered in the Comprehensive Curriculum is weather.  Merriam Webster's online dictionary defines weather as "the state of the atmosphere in regard to heat or cold, wetness or dryness, calm or storm, clearness or cloudiness".  Basically weather is what it's like outside.  Here are some links to websites that relate to weather.
