Mrs. Winton's seventh graders had another opportunity to talk weather with another school. This time they Skyped with fifth graders in Clinton, North Carolina who also recently learned about weather. Our students were especially curious about how the Clinton students were affected by Hurricane Sandy. Although they were surprisingly not affected at all, they shared some personal stories of enduring other hurricanes. They also shared information about their weather during the different seasons as well as the different weather patterns that occur simultaneously throughout their entire state. What else surprised us? They close school when they have one inch of snow!!! They were equally shocked at how much snow we usually see in an average winter.
