Giant Springs students get weather lessons from a KRTV meteorologist

Posted at 4:17 PM, Mar 23, 2023

The 2nd graders at Giant Springs Elementary School learned about weather from Meteorologist Ryan Dennis on Thursday, March 23, 2023.

Ryan taught the kids about some of the weather instruments that meteorologists use to record temperature and wind speed/direction.

The kids also learned about thunderstorms and tornadoes and how to stay safe when severe weather strikes.

No weather lesson is complete without some experiments though as the kids got to see how strong their own wind was by using an anemometer and they got to see a tornado in a bottle.

If you are an elementary school teacher and are interested in having us teach your class about the weather, then please email The next available dates are in mid-April.
