Storming Into Science at Lockhart

WEATHER 1 WEATHER 2 WEATHER 3 WEATHER 4

Kindergartners learned about weather during a hands-on STEAM lesson at Lockhart Elementary School. They explored severe storms including blizzards, hurricanes, thunderstorms and tornadoes.

 Led by Magnet and STEAM teacher Joanne Markowski and with support from the kindergarten teachers, students conducted their own science experiments. They put water, glitter and plastic beads into small jars, then shook them in a counterclockwise manner. Children observed the funnels created in the water, as well as the disruptions to the glitter and beads, simulating the lift caused by wind.
