Polson Holds Virtual Assembly with Fox 61 Meteorologist Matt Scott

On May 6, Polson held a virtual assembly with Fox 61 Meteorologist Matt Scott for all Grade 6 students.  Mr. Scott zoomed live from his studio to show the students what goes into creating the weather report, how to predict the weather, and the tools meteorologists use to make prediction as accurate as possible.

Garde 6 students are currently in the weather/climate science unit. The assembly provided students a more in-depth look at the role of meteorologists in the real world. Later in the unit, students will become meteorologists and analyze data to make a weather forecast and then create the weather forecast using FlipGrid. This presentation provided students with additional information to help them succeed at this upcoming real-world project.
