CREATING A BAROMETER -- As part of their study of weather and climate, fourth-grade students at the Thaddeus Stevens School in Lyndon Center have constructed a barometer that they check daily, sometimes hourly, to measure changes in air pressure. The barometer, consisting of an upside-down plastic bottle with the bottom cut off and filled half-way with water stands in an aquarium that is filled with a few inches of water. Students mark the changes in water level which is directly related to air pressure. As the air pressure changes, students are able to predict a change in the weather. Working on their project are, from left, Sawyer Castle, Caleb Morgan, William Gilman, Jack Grant, Colby Prue, Kalei Foley-Ruthfurd and Phoebe Barrett.
