Our 5th grade students experienced the weather expertise of Brad Panovich when he visited Knollwood Elementary. Mr. Panovich is the evening meteorologist for WCNC Channel 6 in Charlotte.
Students have been studying weather and were able to show off their expertise and answer Mr. Panovich's questions about weather tools, fronts, and storms. Mr. Panovich shared a picture slideshow to showcase weather patterns, and even put on several demonstrations.
As part of the presentation the meteorologist created a tornado to show the students! His presentation helped the students connect their classroom learning to real life, and we will all be eagerly watching Mr. Panovich's forecast each night.
