I got to spend some time with a great group of Sixth Graders from DAR Middle School in Grant Thursday!  Over 100 students packed into the library to talk weather with me; they’ve been studying weather and climate for almost nine weeks now, so I had to throw some curveballs at them to see just how much they’ve been paying attention!

So how did they do?  Once we established that seeing isn’t always understanding or ‘knowing’ in science, they caught on to my tricks pretty quickly!

No trip to Grant, Alabama is complete with out two things: a selfie and some cookies.  Telah’s Cozy Cookies to be precise!

Thank you to Mrs. Guffey and the entire Sixth Grade Class for inviting me to the mountain today!
