Lightning

A bolt of lightning can be pretty. It can be scary. It can cause fires. It can also help plants to grow.

Lightning is a big charge of electricity. It shoots down from storm clouds. There are thousands of lightning strikes every day.

These strikes can hurt you. They can even kill you. Lightning can set grass and houses on fire, too.

Plants need nitrogen to grow. Lightning puts nitrogen into the dirt. This helps to keep plants healthy.

In a storm, go inside. Stay away from windows and water. Lightning can strike through the phone. Stay off the phone. Watch the lightning from a safe place.
