Very special cut and paste, Smartboard, and/or Velcro and laminate activity that challenges many types of learners.

WIDE RANGE OF ABILITY LEVELS! Predicated on the fact that the instructor determines the difficulty level of the whole activity or part of the activity based on what information is given and what information is not as well as how verbal questions are presented to the student(s).

This has been used on travelling science days with high marks and acclaim.

Can be infused so learners that need an alternative assessment or may struggle with standard activities/labs/assessments have such an engaging option.

This activity has been used in all levels: special education to advanced learners (even honors).

Perfect for homeschooling!

This is a thorough and DYNAMIC activity that covers a ton of information about wind. This has been used as a pre-class, lab/activity, study guide, review, and assessment. This is an effective teaching tool one on one, in small groups, and as a class when using a Smart Board/Promethean Board/Projection.

A guaranteed hit all around!

A great addition to your meteorological teaching library.

Within the classroom, this activity has been consistently very successful and acclaimed by students in grades 6th – 12th within multiple types of schools - public, private, and charter.

This work has also been shared at workshops, in-services, and conferences.

Great feedback from parents, teachers, and administrators.

Even used by teachers in New York State as a preparation for the Earth Science Grade 9 Regents Exam.
