This is a great webquest / Internet assignment to use near the beginning of any unit focusing on weather (works good using school technology or for homework).
FRONT SIDE - Students will go to the website www.weather.gov and complete a chart identifying current temperature and weather details for 17 U.S. cities. Some of the cities are identified and others are for student choice. The chart can be easily modified in minutes to make any changes you want. Because of the nature of the assignment, the chart will change every day much like the weather changes so an answer key will also need to be filled out by a teacher the day of the assignment.
BACK SIDE - Students will go to the website www.weatherforyou.com/history/ to identify three significant weather/disaster events that occurred on this date in history. Students will then change the date to their birthdate to find what weather events occurred at that time.
This is a quick and fun assignment that most students really enjoy since it shows them a wide range of current weather in our country and gives them a historical look at weather events. Great for discussion the following day.
The webquest is provided as an MS-Word document so you can modify or edit as needed to fit the needs of your students.
Thank you for your purchase and for taking the time to leave me positive feedback.
