This project is a great way for students to connect real-life and science as they research a historical weather disaster (list provided) and follow the detailed directions to create a presentation! These specifics allow all students to create a successful presentation in a timely manner. Students practice reading and finding/distilling information, and creating a presentation (great common core connections!!).

This connects well to hurricane season every year, and other current events globally. These could then be submitted to the teacher, printed, or used to do presentations in class. This would work well at the start or end of a weather unit (a hook, or a final project).

Works well with these products:

Weather Jeopardy Style Review Game

Hurricane Tracking Latitude-Longitude Activity

Land and Sea Breeze Lab

Climate Introduction Lesson Plan, Handouts, and Smartboard File

Ice Storm Weather Analysis

Analyze and interpret data on natural hazards to forecast future catastrophic events and inform the development of technologies to mitigate their effects. Emphasis is on how some natural hazards, such as volcanic eruptions and severe weather, are preceded by phenomena that allow for reliable predictions, but others, such as earthquakes, occur suddenly and with no notice, and thus are not yet predictable. Examples of natural hazards can be taken from interior processes (such as earthquakes and volcanic eruptions), surface processes (such as mass wasting and tsunamis), or severe weather events (such as hurricanes, tornadoes, and floods). Examples of data can include the locations, magnitudes, and frequencies of the natural hazards. Examples of technologies can be global (such as satellite systems to monitor hurricanes or forest fires) or local (such as building basements in tornado-prone regions or reservoirs to mitigate droughts).
