To supplement their curricular unit on weather, kindergartners at Edith L. Slocum Elementary School recently participated in a virtual assembly led by NBC New York meteorologist Matt Brickman. Wearing paper hats they had decorated to represent different weather elements, the students spread out in the school’s atrium facing a projector screen that broadcasted Brickman live via Google Meets. Brickman taught the students all about weather and meteorology, incorporating pre-recorded videos by his colleagues at NBC and hands-on demonstrations. Much to the students’ amusement, he even covered his arms in shaving cream to demonstrate the different types of clouds. The kindergartners were also given the opportunity to submit relevant questions prior to the assembly, which Brickman answered in detail. Connetquot Central School District thanks Brickman for using his expertise to enrich the students’ learning experience through this informative and enjoyable activity.
Kindergartners in Elizabeth Jonas' class put together this virtual play about the first Thanksgiving. Enjoy!
