Today we continued our unit on weather by starting with the atmosphere and air pressure.  Students learned just how strong air can be by filling a plastic bag, with a straw, with air and piling books on top.  There were mounds of books all over the classroom and students were amazed with how strong air really is!  As we continue our weather unit we will look more in depth at what causes our weather and how meteorologists predict what weather is coming.  At the end of the day students are spending time researching their All About topics, a non-fiction topic that they will end up writing a book about. 

there is a bag of air under there!
