Climate is the weather conditions prevailing in an area in general or over a long period of time. It is typically averaged over a period of thirty years. Weather is the state of atmosphere at a place during a short period of time. It is described by how cold or hot, wet or dry, calm or stormy, clear or cloudy it is. The elements of weather include; temperature, humidity, wind, rainfall and many more. The study of weather is known as meteorology and the people who study it are called meteorologists.

In most cases, weather affects our human behaviour and we carry out our day to day lives. Pleasing weather tends to improve people's mood. However when it is very hot or too cold, weather is linked to a lower mood. Weather influences what we wear everyday. People wear warm clothing when it is too cold. At other times; it also affects what we eat. People take hot drinks on a cold day and cold beverages on a hot day.

Weather also influences the sale of goods in markets. Depending on the temperature, people buy scarves, jackets and other warm outfits during the cold season. This changes when the weather turns hot.

Weather is determined by the current state of the atmosphere in a particular area. It is also affected by personal changes due to the Earth's rotation around the sun. Atmospheric pressure is also one of the most important factors in weather change.

A season is a part of a year that is marked by specific weather conditions. These are summer, autumn, spring and winter. On the other hand, there are three types of climate, wam, temperate and polar.

A long time ago, a large number of lizards lived in a hole on the bank ofa river. The lizards had a good wise king to rule over them but the king had a son who was not good and far from wise. The lizard prince was foolish and stubborn. He refused to take the good advice which his father often gave him.

Not far from where lizards stayed, lived a young chameleon. One day the lizard prince met the chameleon. They took a great fancy to each other and soon they became the best of friends. The lizard king did not approve of their friendship, and he felt that the chameleon was not to be trusted. He feared that some day the chameleon might harm both his son and all his lizard subjects. The lizard therefore warned his son about this. He told him to break off with the chameleon but the lizard prince would not listen. In spite of many wamings, he continued to meet chameleon and be friendly with him.

As time passed, the lizard prince grew larger and larger. The chameleon continued to be the
same size. Noticing the difference, the chameleon said to himself, "This lizard is growing by the day. A time will come when he is likely to crush me to death. Before that happens, I must find a way to get rid of both him and all the other lizards.

The chameleon waited for a chance to carry out his plan. One day, there came to a river bank, a hunter and his dogs.

I will show you a place where there are plenty of lizards for you to catch."Offered the chameleon.

"That is very kind of you," said the hunter and he went at once with the chameleon. That chameleon showed him the lizard's home. The hunter promptly lit a fire. He then smoked all the lizards out of their hole. As lizards tried to escape, the hunter's dogs fell on them and soon killed them all.
