The 3rd graders in Ms. Lundy's class at Whittier Elementary School learned about weather from Meteorologist Ryan Dennis on Friday, January 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.

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.

If you are an elementary school teacher and are interested in having us teach your class about the weather, then please email ryan.dennis@krtv.com.
