The 3rd graders at Lewis and Clark Elementary School in Great Falls learned about weather from Meteorologist Ryan Dennis on Friday, April 26, 2024.

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 the different types of precipitation and how to stay safe when severe weather strikes.

No weather lesson is complete without some experiments though as the kids got to learn about air pressure by using a hair dryer and leaf blower, and they got to see how strong their own wind was by using an anemometer.
