Each coloring sheet is created from a real photograph. This photograph was taken by a fantastic Wildland Fire Management Analyst named Casey Teske. As an Analyst in the USA, she is actively engaged in wildfire and ecology decision-making and research, public education and outreach, and operational fire decision-making duties during both prescribed fires and wildfires. Cool, huh?
We hope you enjoyed coloring your sheet. How does it compare to the photo above? Does the photo make you think differently about the picture? Did you use different colors? We can’t wait to see everyone’s finished coloring, so be sure to share below or on social media (with your parent’s permission, of course)!
If you watch these two videos, you’ll learn in the first one how weather balloons and their instrumentation work and in the second video, you’ll see how weather balloons are used on wildfires!
