Product Description
Project Description:
Weather happens all the time, all around us, and we can expect a combination of days that are cloudy, sunny, rainy, and windy. But in some cases, an approaching storm becomes EXTREME. What conditions make these extreme storms? Where do they occur? And how often do they happen? These questions are the basis for your next project.
As a team of meteorologists, you will provide a class of elementary school students an explanation and safety tips for extreme weather. You must explain to the students HOW the extreme weather occurs, what they might hear on the TV/radio about this event, and what safety precautions they should take in case of this event occurring.
Be sure your presentation includes the following items:
 An overview of extreme weather events—floods, thunderstorms, tornadoes, blizzards, and lake effect snow—in Indiana, including WHEN and WHERE they typically occur
 Descriptions of how these extreme weather events are produced – what fronts/air masses collide and what makes them more volatile than other storms
 Three to four-step illustrations or drawings of how these events occur
 Watches/Warnings that go into effect on the TV/radio during these events. Distinguish between the conditions that dictate watches and warnings for each weather event.
 Give at least three safety tips for each extreme weather event.
