PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Also available in our Natural Disaster Activity Pack - 4 products in one.

This activity pack contains 14 activities to explore the topic of Tropical Cyclones (which are also called cyclones, hurricanes and typhoons depending upon where you live in the world). They can be used as whole class activities, centre activities or individual activities. The activities strongly combine the science topic with reading skills and strategies. Many activities relate to the comprehension strategy of summarising. Some are also writing prompts. Some of them link to internet sites for technology use. A lot of the activities are in foldable format. Answers are included where appropriate. The only resources that are needed are some
texts or books on tropical cyclones which can include websites. Any activities that require a text or book can then be scaffolded to the appropriate level.
