Understanding the Weather

RandbyWx1resizeThe 3rd and 4th graders are studying weather, and who better to teach them than our own, Omaha meteorologist, Bill Randby of Channel 7 News. He talked about many aspects of weather; including layers of the atmosphere, rainbows, the sun, the water cycle, snowstorms, tornadoes, hail and even "sun dogs". Interacting with students, Randby performed two experiments. The first helped the students understand air pressure. He lit a small piece of paper on fire and dropped it into a bottle at which time a student placed a water filled balloon on top of the jar's mouth. Students were amazed at how quickly the balloon fell into the jar. The next experiment demonstrated how particles of ice can be blown up continuously to form hail.

Everyone enjoyed his hour-long visit it just seemed to fly by. Randby even mentioned his visit to St. Mary's School during his 5 o'clock weather report. His twin daughters attend St. Margaret Mary School in Omaha.
