Product Description
This 25-page document contains notes about Winter Storms, Thunderstorms, Hurricanes, and Tornadoes. They are designed to supplement a unit about weather science or meteorology. I teach the storms in this order because I find winter storms to be the least scary of the storms, while tornadoes tend to be the scariest for elementary students.

Each storm has its own section of notes, which includes:
-What the storm is
-How the storm forms
-Characteristics of the storms
-Watches and warnings associated with the storm
-Staying safe during and after the storm
-A 7-question worksheet and answer key

The Hurricanes section contains the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale, and the Tornadoes section contains the Enhanced Fujita Scale.

For each section, I included the sources I used (such as WeatherWizKids.com and Ready.gov) so you and your students will know I'm not just making this stuff up!

I found that each storm took approximately 90 minutes to 2 hours to teach when I used these notes. This included time to distribute the notes, paste them in the students' science notebooks, read the notes, and discuss them. I HIGHLY recommend trimming the notes before giving them to the students - you are MUCH faster with a paper cutter than they are with scissors!

Thanks for looking! I hope you find this useful.
