See store for numerous other weather based assignments running the gamut from severe thunderstorms to winter storms.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Applicable to many levels of academic diversity. LOADED with maps and numerous conclusion questions of various depths of comprehension. Fusion content involving weather maps, fronts, air masses, thunderstorms, tornadoes, forecasting, severe and weather indicators.

It’s FUN, COLORFUL, and REAL SCIENCE!

Surface and upper air analysis relative to the historic severe weather outbreak of 2011 incorporating:

April 25, 2011
April 26, 2011
April 27, 2011
April 28, 2011

The LARGEST SEVERE WEATHER OUTBREAK IN UNITED STATES history!

BONUS: May 16-18, 2017 Severe Weather Outbreak

The lab curriculum includes the following content and pedagogical formatting:

-April 26, 2011 surface map analysis incorporating station model evaluation and weather summaries. Storm Prediction Center (SPC) outlooks and storm reports. Specific storm details, Doppler radar analysis, Fujita scale, and damage evaluation. Professional severe weather indices of relative storm motion and helicity (rotation).

-April 27, 2011 surface map analysis incorporating station model evaluation and weather summaries. Detailed upper air map synthesis involving 500mb heights. Applications to jet stream patterns, air masses, and fronts. Introduction to severe weather indices such as lifted index and helicity. Further data synthesis incorporating SPC risk zones and actual severe weather reports. Other features include mesoscale discussions, Doppler radar reflectivity, Doppler radar relative velocity, detailed text based storm reports, and ASTER damage tracks

-April 28, 2011 surface map analysis incorporating station model evaluation and weather summaries. Detailed upper air map synthesis involving 500mb heights. Applications to jet stream patterns, air masses, and fronts. Also included are parameters required to issue a severe thunderstorm/tornado watch or warning. Inclusion of severe weather indicators such as lifted index and mean layer convective available potential energy (MLCAPE) as well as storm relative helicity and storm motion

-Detailed tutorial of “drylines” and the significance to severe thunderstorms.

-May 16, 2017 surface map analysis. Also included are SPC storm report maps, visible satellite imagery, infrared imagery, and Doppler radar imagery. Loaded with comprehension questions.

-May 18, 2017 surface map analysis. Fusion of SPC risk maps, SPC storm report maps, detailed professional mesoscale discussions, and Doppler radar evaluation.

Other reference information, tutorials, and maps to assist you include: station models and fronts, air masses, common weather symbols, Doppler radar, tornado classification, infrared satellite imaging, conversion of UTC (Zulu) time, multiple severe weather parameters, and 500 millibar map forecasting

This activity allows YOU to CHOOSE to difficulty and pedagogical strategy.

Please see preview and read entire description.

Can be printed entirely or given to students in sections based on their ability and/or your curriculum parameters. You decide.

Fantastic for college prep, advanced, special education, and/or autistic-Asperger’s learners who need differentiated instruction or other non-traditional (direct instruction) pedagogical strategies.

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

Can be infused easily into curriculum 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 of classes: special education, general education, and advanced.

Perfect for homeschooling!

This is a thorough and DYNAMIC activity that covers a ton of information about meteorology!

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. Sections have also been used in undergraduate meteorology courses.

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

Applicable to many state science assessments and benchmarks.

Has been applied to state mandated North Carolina end of year tests for science in grades 5 and 8.

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