Lower School Students Explore Day in the Life of a Meteorologist

Students in grades three and four at Gill St. Bernard’s School in Gladstone, N.J. were inspired to explore one of the many career opportunities available to them as adults during an assembly with meteorologist John Marshall. Marshall, a former anchor for both NBC and CBS, has presented school weather assemblies to students from as early as elementary school to eighth grade since 2012.

During the demonstration, Marshall talked with students about the various weather systems, explained how they form, and described differences between the four cloud families. He also explained the process of becoming a weather man and gladly answered questions from the crowd. Afterward, students stepped into the shoes of a real-life newscaster and used a green screen to forecast the weekly weather ahead.

Does your school do something similar?
