Youth may be interested in the "Weather Minds" classes on YouTube, which include brief videos of Airplane Flight Data, Blizzards, Thunder, Rainbows, etc., and each ends with a book about the subject read by one of the KARE 11 meteorologists.  Classes can be used for home schooling.  Adults, too, can learn from the lessons!
