All Saints was pleased to welcome NBC4 Meteorologist and author Tom Kierein back to All Saints for a fun and informative weather assembly for students in kindergarten through third grade, Fifth grade teacher Mrs. Honkus arranged the visit in conjunction with the students’ study of weather in science.
During his interactive presentation, Mr. Kierein discussed the causes of various types of weather, how computer models of the atmosphere help predict the weather, and the importance of keeping safe in bad weather. He also showed students pages from a 3-D book that he published about weather.
We learned that Mr. Kierein’s favorite weather is snow, because it is the most challenging to accurately predict. To keep everyone informed about the weather, Mr. Kierein begins each day quite early to assess the latest weather patterns, and takes the equivalent of a seven question test each day focused on what the weather will be like for the week to come.
Enjoyed by students and faculty alike, this look at weather was both interesting and engaging. We wish to thank Mr. Tom Kierein for taking time out of his busy day to spend the morning with All Saints and to share his knowledge and insights with our students!
