A combination of resources for teaching about hurricanes.
1. Instructional videos about categories, how they're formed, how to prepare for a hurricane, how houses are built to withstand hurricane fprce winds etc
2. A documentary about Hurricane Katrina
3. A project that allows students to apply concepts from the videos to design and construct hurricane-proof houses with paper, straws and tape (using math concepts of area & volume). Students test their hurricane-proof houses with a leaf blower at the end of the project.
