Hurricane Watch: How Scientists Analyze Their Effects on Coastlines

Hurricanes can have devastating affects such as flooding and property damage. In this WebQuest, meteorology learners discover what contributes to tropical storms and how they are measured. They visit several outstanding websites and answer ten questions along the way. The lesson plan mentions aerial photos of North Carolina hurricane destruction and a PowerPoint presentation, but does not include them. The WebQuest can strongly stand alone without this portion of the lesson, or locate the pictures through the Lesson Planet website!

As a first year teacher, Lesson Planet is a precious lifeline! I am able to gather ideas and build on the ideas of veteran teachers. Lesson Planet is a huge time saver, especially for a first year teacher who is trying very diligently not to become overwhelmed!
