The 3rd graders at Valley View Elementary School learned about weather from Meteorologist Ryan Dennis on Friday, May 19, 2023.

Ryan taught the kids about the difference between weather and climate. Ryan also taught the kids about some of the weather instruments that meteorologists use to record temperature as well as wind speed and direction.

The kids also learned about the different types of precipitation.

No weather lesson is complete without some experiments though as the kids got to experience wind through an air blaster and they got to see how strong their own wind was by using an anemometer.
