ANCHORAGE, Alaska (KTUU) - The first step to the scientific method — after knowing what problem you’re solving — is making observations.

In this week’s Weather Lab, Chief Meteorologist Melissa Frey visited Bear Valley Elementary School where making observations comes naturally to third graders.

They were just getting started on their science lessons about the weather when Melissa joined the classroom, but they were able to apply what they already know about math and the scientific method to figure out how to observe the weather. With some of the basics down they quickly moved on to testing their hypotheses and conducting experiments.
