La Crescent Montessori Hosts Weather Academy

LA CRESCENT, Minnesota (WXOW) - Students learned about the weather through science experiments like making a cloud in a jar and crushing a can using air pressure.

One experiment that really caught the kids' attention used hot and cold water to show how air of different temperatures move.

"Well, I though it was cool how in the fish tank," said Parker Howland-Davis, 4th grader, "that the cold water would go to the bottom and the warmer water would go to the top."

Another experiment that made a big impression used dry ice to make a bubble.

"It was cool to see it pop," said Jack Kreutzman.

After the presentation, the kids asked questions for an additional half hour before being cut off and sent back to class.
