Wacky Weather?

Early spring? Wacky weather? Call it what you want but it was 70 degrees outside our offices yesterday.
But do you know why the Sun is glad to be almost 93 million miles away from Earth? Because Earth's atmosphere is so gassy! This is just one of the many funny jokes in our new title, Wacky Weather and Silly Season Jokes: Laugh and Learn About Science from our Super Silly Science Jokes series written by Melissa Stewart. Each chapter includes a page of interesting facts and explanations about different facets of the weather and the seasons, while each opposing page is sprinkled with a couple of jokes that pertain to the information provided in the chapter. There's even instructions for writing your own jokes included. Students can submit their original science jokes to Melissa Stewart at: including their first name and age and Melissa posts the best jokes on Fridays on her Celebrate Science blog.
