(20 pages) Nine activities are included. Students may research hail frequency using a designated website. Versions are included in which data is already provided. There are three different activities which require students to color code hail event frequency for each of the lower 48 U.S. states. Maps are provided. In one activity, students manipulate data by making simple calculations to see if hail frequency per state is any different than state hail frequency averaged per 40000 sq mi area. This different way of looking at the same data is an eye opener to many students. Large hail events are investigated. Students will color code damaging hail (2" or larger) data onto a U.S. map. In addition, 3" hail events are investigated for two states, Kansas & Nebraska. All activities involve researching, presenting, or manipulating data. And they provide a very good introduction to two incredibly interesting topics - thunderstorms and hail!
