What role does weather play in our lives? How do changes in the weather impact the world we live in, and even alter our thoughts and feelings? For many students, weather is an abstract concept rather than a purely scientific one. Students explore the synesthesia of weather alongside the facts of weather over the course of eight weeks through a series of multimedia projects that include the writing and recitation of poetry and a variety of visual arts. Students develop vivid vocabulary and better understand weather’s incredible influence, not just on the environment, but also on them.
