Exciting weather quizzes

I was subbing in the fourth grade today. A bunch of 4th grades got together and played Jeopardy on the large-scale, wall computer (Smart Board). This was a review for a weather quiz they are having tomorrow. I was impressed with how much the kids knew about weather instruments, atmospheric conditions, cold and warm fronts, severe weather, and all the rest.

They got so excited and at one point they were bubbling over with pride in what they knew and in the excitement of the game. The question was posed about two kinds of fair weather clouds. In his group to debate the answer, one shouted, "Cyrus and Curious!"

LOL. The finally got it ironed out to cirrus and cumulus and won $400, Alex.
