Weather and Meteorology
Fifth grade students have been studying weather and climate, including the function of the water cycle, the difference between climate and weather and factors that impact both, the tools that a Meteorologist uses, and how different areas experience different types of weather patterns. On Friday, the students enjoyed a special visit via Zoom from Jayme King, Fox 35 Meteorologist, who took them on a virtual tour of the studio. He showed them his weather instruments, discussed hurricanes and tornadoes, and answered many questions. He also shared experiences he has had throughout his career and talked about career opportunities in the field of Meteorology. It was an informative and memorable experience!
