Hurricanes 101

Hello colleagues, We are all aware of the devastation that Hurricane Harvey wreaked on southeast Texas and the surrounding area. This week Hurricane Irma, another historic storm, is creating tragedies in its path and is expected to hit the US mainland this weekend.

I know we are all hoping and praying that everyone living in Florida will stay safe.

Since interest in hurricanes is at a peak, some teachers may want to focus lessons on this topic. Here are a few resources related to hurricanes.

National Geographic Hurricanes 101 with videos and articles on hurricanes.

Please share any additional resources that might be useful on this topic.
