This activity is great to use early in the school year, during hurricane season as an introductory activity, in a unit on latitude and longitude, in a weather and storms unit, or at another time during the year as a teachable moment when there is a large hurricane or storm in the news.
It is a great to supplement this activity by showing a piece of relevant news or weather forecast.
In this activity students use real hurricane data to plot the path of the hurricane on a hurricane tracking map. They then use a planetary wind diagram to analyze the pattern and make inferences about the hurricane's path. Lastly, they make suggestions for an emergency plan, in case of a hurricane.
