As the Math/Science Coordinator for an elementary school, I enjoy doing lessons and projects with all classes K-5. It is rewarding to watch different age levels work within similar strands and see the development of concepts as the children mature. One concept that all grade levels teach is weather and how it affects ourdaily lives. Starting in second grade, our students are required to read thermometers and graph the temperature. By fifth grade,they are expected to be able to read not only a thermometer but also a barometer, anemometer and rain gauge. We have a wonderful courtyard in the center of our school and it would be wonderful to have a weather station with accurate instruments for the children to use. Right now our anemometer is made from paper cups. It would be wonderful to have a working one which would indicate both the direction of the wind and wind speed. Our rain gauge falls over if we have a thunderstorm! A weather station would benefit all 500 of our students and help reinforce skills in math and science.
