Throughout their learning, children surprise us with basic questions that we do not know how to answer. The childhood curiosity is insatiable and sometimes they can put us in more of a hurry asking questions that we had not even considered.
Storms are one of those famous whys of children, like everything that has to do with nature. What do children wonder about this weather phenomenon? Get ready for the whys of your children, but above all, prepare for the answers.
The whys of storms that a child can make of you
Have you ever wondered why a storm occurs? If you still have not asked, I'm sure your son will do it for you. We have prepared the answers to the meteorological phenomena that so disturb the children. But if you do not know the scientific answer, you can always resort to mythology or imagination.
1. Why there are storms. Storms are a very striking weather phenomenon that forms when two air masses of different temperatures gather in the atmosphere. The contrast between the two temperatures forms a kind of shock that generates lightning, thunder, rain, hail and strong wind so typical of storms.
2. Why the sky is lit with the rays. When there is a storm, the illuminated sky suele is usually seen as if it were suddenly lit with a flashlight. Lightning and lightning are actually electricity in the cloudsthat occurs when the ice and water collide in them collide. Being electricity, it is not strange that the sky is illuminated.3. Why thunder sounds.
After the thunderbolt, the thunder comes and depending on the seconds that pass between them, the storm will be more or less close. Although lightning and thunder are produced at the same time, it does not give us that distinction. You have to count the seconds that pass between one and another to know if the storm is near or is already moving away. In reality, the thunder is nothing more than the sound of the vibrations of hot and cold air colliding. 4. Why it rains in the storm.
It does not only rain when there is a storm, there is also wind and maybe even hail. Rain is the vapor that condenses inside the clouds and falls to the earth, but in the case of storms is the product of electrical activity that is generated in the clouds. That is why stormy rain is usually stronger and more intense. 5. Why is it done at night when there is a storm?
If the clouds are usually white, when there is a storm they turn dark gray and that makes it look like it was done at night . This dark color of the clouds is produced because they carry a large amount of water and light can not penetrate the cloud. Luckily, in every storm we find its rays to illuminate the sky.Laura Vélez.
