Hurricanes are often in the news near the start of the school year. This EASY NO PREP ACTIVITY is a great way to engage students with real science, or during a unit on latitude and longitude, weather and storms, or at other times during the year.
Students will use real hurricane data to plot the path of the hurricane on a hurricane tracking map, use a planetary wind diagram to analyze and make inferences about the data. Lastly, students make suggestions for an emergency plan.

It is great to supplement this activity by showing a piece of relevant news or weather forecast.

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Collect data to provide evidence for how the motions and complex interactions of air masses result in changes in weather conditions. Emphasis is on how air masses flow from regions of high pressure to low pressure, causing weather (defined by temperature, pressure, humidity, precipitation, and wind) at a fixed location to change over time, and how sudden changes in weather can result when different air masses collide. Emphasis is on how weather can be predicted within probabilistic ranges. Examples of data can be provided to students (such as weather maps, diagrams, and visualizations) or obtained through laboratory experiments (such as with condensation). Assessment does not include recalling the names of cloud types or weather symbols used on weather maps or the reported diagrams from weather stations.
