Earth Science students at the High School are learning about weather patterns and applying their knowledge to create a weekly forecast. Students in Craig Marlow’s class recently reviewed what causes weather and fronts, as well as how to read weather maps.
On a weekly basis, students create their own forecast that includes the predicted temperature trends over a five-day period and what precipitation can be expected. The Earth Science students then do the morning announcements, showing a video with their five-day forecast.
The weather forecast is an interactive way for students to use the principles and concepts they learned about in class to a real-life application.
