To 0ake 0I Ms. Carson s Clss You Have T Ler How To Handle Presure. HighV The students in Rene Carson's science class know all about pressure. Not to mention temperature, humidity and the other aspects of meteorology. Because Ms. Carson has turned these junior high school students into full-fledged weather forecasters. Ms. Carson had her students take all they learned in class about weather fronts, and how pressure systems affect things like temperature and barometric readings, and put it to work. Dividing the class into small groups, she had each pick a location across the country and attempt to accurately predict the weather. Then, after spending days consulting weather maps, satellite photos and the Internet, each group made a detailed presentation of their weather forecast which was critiqued by the entire class. And, quite predictably, they all learned a lot about .. *..*... . how weather really works. .* Low For giving her students the kind of education they can depend on, rain or shine, State Farm is proud to present Rene Carson of the Little Rock, Arkansas Instructional Resource Center with our Good Neighbor Award® and to donate $5,000 to the school district in her name.
