With the assistance of “Weather Minds” from WFAA, meteorologist Collen Coyle helped the second graders of Cullins-Lake Pointe get a hands on lesson on weather safety with the approaching tornado season. The second graders have been learning about the different types of weather safety in their classes. The students at Cullins were so excited to hear first-hand from a meteorologist about how the weather is predicted!
A second grader in Mrs. Bishop’s class, Nathan Freeman, said that he learned that “static electricity can be conducted by water. That’s why you can’t be in the water when there’s lightning! Don’t be in your pool!”
Ayden Rosales, also in Mrs. Bishop’s class said, “I learned that you need to stay away from tall objects when there’s lightning. It’s just safer to stay indoors.”
