CHARLOTTE – News 14 Carolina Chief Meteorologist Jeff Crum took some time away from doing the weather to talk to students in south Charlotte on Friday.
He spoke to a group of kindergarten students from Beverly Woods Elementary School. They asked him questions about everything from science to his daily life on the job at News 14.
Teachers say they talk about weather all year long and students even take turns being the meteorologist for their classrooms.
“They go outside, they come back and report, we have a graph, we compare our data on the graph and compare the weather each week. We also talk about how it affects human activities – what we have to wear and how it affects our lives,” said teacher Layne Garner.
Some fifth graders from St. Patrick's Catholic School were also there. The classes have a partnership through the Teaching Fellows Institute.
