Lower School Students Participate in Exciting Weather Lab
Recently, first and second-grade students at Prince Avenue Christian School had the opportunity to explore the many types of weather and how they occur. Students discovered how the earth moves and creates seasons and how the sun affects weather. Students also experimented with temperature, lightning storms, tornadoes, and even snow. In addition, students learned how to use rain gauges, barometers, anemometers, and thermometers. They were able to simulate a desktop rainstorm, make tornadoes in a bottle, and touch a cloud in a box.
This exciting and informative lab was funded by the Walton EMC School Empowerment Grant received by Prince last school year. This grant is the STEM Lab Establishment/Science Curriculum Grant and has benefitted the lower school with science equipment and supplies such as microscopes, balance scales, and other lab tools as well as supplies needed for projects to enrich studies in earth, physical, and life science.
