Wind's Kind

         Wind is moving air.
Warm air rises and cold air falls.
  This is the origin of the wind.

In the story "Sand Castle", the huff and puff
        of the cloud "F" is the wind

 Do you want to know more about the clouds?

 from Tyler Bostock on Vimeo is interesting.

 You can see how the sun
 shape clouds by evaporation.
There are clouds of different types
 according to their height and shape.

 Do you want to know more about the wind?

  The hot air rises because it weighs less.
The cold air sinks because it weighs more.
  Air in motion shape the different winds:
           from breeze to hurricane.
You can find more interesting information
            and games on these sites.
