This is a Project-Based Learning activity that can be implemented in almost any science classroom for a hurricanes or severe weather unit. It is all about hurricanes. Students will learn how storm systems are tracked throughout the season, how to prepare for an approaching storm and create a PSA or newscast to help the community prepare.
This project has multiple parts:
✅ A storm tracker for daily student logging of the trajectory of storms in the Atlantic Ocean
✅ Research into the development of storms,classification, history, tracking, and preparing for a storm
✅ A preparedness plan for individuals and families
✅ Gallery walk for peer review and reflection
✅ Creating a public service announcement or newscast
A Project-Based Learning (PBL) notebook is included to guide students through each part of the planning process and research. Details on how to implement each part of the project are also included.
