WXII Meterologist Teaches Weather to 2nd Grade

Today we had a very special visitor at Kimmel Farm- Lanie Pope, chief meteorologist from WXII 12, paid us a special visit. Having her as our guest was a real treat. She shared some great information with students. Her presentation included how different types of precipitation develop, how to keep safe in severe weather and she also talked with students about the different tools used to forecast weather. This was a wonderful opportunity for students to extend their knowledge about a topic we've previously studied in our science curriculum. What a great way to connect school and community. - by Mrs. Fala (second grade)
