Extreme Weather

Sixth graders recently studied weather, extreme weather, and weather patterns.

During this unit, the boys learned about hurricanes and tornadoes, how and where they form, and the damage they can cause.

In class, they created tornado tubes to better examine the vortex and eye of these types of storms. This allowed the boys to get a better sense of the destruction caused by extreme weather and to see, first-hand, what is happening in the weather phenomenon.

In these labs, and throughout our STEAM program, our boys practice science as they observe, infer, and predict.
