Kindergartners Discover the Wonders of Weather

February 08, 2018

Kindergartners Discover the Wonders of Weather - image001Summit Lane kindergarten students in Kathryn Stewart's class visited the Outdoor Learning Center at the Levittown Memorial Education Center on Jan. 25 to further their knowledge on the seasons, weather, greenhouses and the environment. Elementary students throughout the Levittown Public Schools visit the center during the year to engage in hand-on activities and lessons relating to the sciences.

Under the guidance of Outdoor Learning Center teacher Jessica Mills, the students each received a weather journal and spoke about the weather outside using their five senses. They also learned how to utilize various weather tools such as the thermometer. The class ventured outside with clipboards in hand to study outdoor tools such as a weather vane and rain gauge. They recorded their observations in their journals.

In addition, students had the opportunity to go inside a greenhouse, filled with different plants and vegetables. Mills led the kindergartners around the greenhouse while describing what it contained. Among the vegetation, they learned about the banana tree and fresh snap peas. Before heading back inside the center, the class stopped by the pond and observed the frozen water.

While in the classroom, students received goggles and studied the effect of a pine cone in wet versus dry weather. Mills explained to students that you can tell the weather by looking at a pine cone and seeing if it is open or closed. The kindergartners then had the opportunity to use their magnifying glasses and microscopes to get a closer look at their pine cones.
