This is a great connection for students to make between real life and science! This connects well to hurricane season every year, and specifically to the giant storm going on now that's affecting most of the east coast.
This product includes a clear student directions to research one of the major weather historical weather disasters (list provided), and create a powerpoint with specific information on each slide. 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!!). 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).
