    Fifth-graders at Forest Lake, Mandalay and Wantagh elementary schools crafted their own weather reports using a green screen and iPad. The students took liberties with their reports filled with coverage on blizzards, deluges and hurricanes and then recorded and watched these reports on DoInk, an educational technology application, which provides powerful tools for students to create advanced animations.
