Meteorologist Alex O'Brien met with students in Colorado Springs and Security to teach them about severe weather in Colorado.

First, she met with the kindergartners at Rocky Mountain Classical Academy. They learned the weather dance today!

Then she spoke to the 5th graders at Atlas Preparatory School. The students just finished their weather unit in class, so they were able to use what they learned in the presentation today.

And finally, she joined Mrs. Garcia's 3rd-grade class at Venetucci Elementary. They created their own 7-day forecast today and will observe the weather over the next week.
