Grade 4s unit about weather
Last week the grade 4 students had the opportunity to go on a field trip to the Deutscher Wetterdienst in Bad Cannstatt. They learned all about weather forecasting and how weather instruments are used to measure air temperature, wind speed, precipitation etc. to record information.
The highlight was the launching of the weather balloon. The students also learned how a weather balloon sends back information to the weather stations for them to prepare a weather forecast.
It was a very educative field trip and the students became more knowledgeable about the topic.
