Why Lesson Planet?
Creating science literacy through writing gets scholars thinking about the context of scientific terms! Learners collaborate to write a short story about hurricanes and tornadoes in a group. Students have 25 minutes to write the story, which must contain 12 words: cyclone, condensation, Category 4, hurricane, eye, millibar, tornado, typhoon, Gulf Stream, trade winds, storm surge, and vortex. Consider requiring an image to give more visual group members a job.
