Shiloh’s 2nd graders learn about weather!

Shiloh’s 2nd graders were treated to a special visit by WSOC TV’s Ms. Vicki Graf on January 15.

Shiloh’s 2nd graders were treated to a special visit by WSOC TV’s Ms. Vicki Graf on January 15. Shiloh is very thankful to Ms. Graf for coming out to our school to give our 2nd grade students a weather presentation. Her information tied in with topics that our 2nd grade teachers are covering in their classrooms. Ms. Graf explained a variety of weather-related terms to the students such as fronts, tornadoes, hurricanes, and low/high pressure systems. Students were able to see pictures and videos about these exciting weather events throughout the presentation.

Ms. Graf allowed time for questions at the end of her presentation, and she even took the time to pose for pictures with the students. “Ms. Graf taught me more about tornadoes. When I grow up I'm going to be a meteorologist," remarked Yoseph Duresso from Mrs. Long’s class. Ms. Graf also explained how exciting it is to be on TV, and how she stands in front of a “green screen” that projects the weather map. She shared with the students that you cannot wear green while standing in front of the green screen, or else you “disappear” on the screen. She shared a funny story that one student remembered as follows: "Ms. Graf works with a green screen, and on Halloween she dressed in green. Then she looked like a floating head. I will be a meteorologist when I grow up," stated Gracie Rhyne from Mrs. Hea’s class. Shiloh thanks Ms. Graf for coming out to our school!
