WSLS 10’s Kristina Montuori teaches at Roanoke school’s Earth Hour

ROANOKE (WSLS 10) – A member of Storm Team 10 took part in a Fishburn Park Elementary School tradition.

WSLS 10’s Kristina Montuori enjoyed Earth Hour as a kid, but on Friday, she got to take part on the teaching side.

Each Earth Hour, teachers plan activities that help the students learn about our environment and how to take care of it. The students get to choose the activities that they are most interested in.

“Our teachers do a phenomenal job planning these environmentally friendly lessons, lessons to get our kids to be really excited and appreciative of nature and our environment and our local topography and climate,” explained the school’s principal, Steven Lin.

Kristina’s group learned the science behind weather and how to stay safe when it turns severe with fun hands-on experiments. The students even worked together to make their very own pocket tornadoes.
