One gray winter day the elderly queen
summoned all her grandchildren to the
castle. “I have been fortunate to have lived a
long life,” she said. “But in time your
generation will rule the country. You must
work persistently to help the people and take
care of the land.
“We will always work hard,” the children
replied.
“You must also be faithful to your brothers
and sisters, no matter what,” the queen said.

From one day to the next, weather can have a big
effect on your life. When it rains, you have to stay
indoors or carry an umbrella. When it's cold, you have to
bundle up.
Over the course of hundreds, thousands, and millions
of years, weather trends affect life on Earth in more
dramatic ways. Ice ages or long droughts, for example,
can wipe out certain types of plants and animals.
Although many species manage to survive such
extreme, long-term climate shifts, their living conditions
also change.
