Predicting and Tracking Hurricanes

Sandy, Katrina, and Ida are common first names in the United States. However, due to recent events, readers may associate these names with something else: hurricanes. These dangerous weather phenomena hold the potential to destroy communities and livelihoods, and understanding hurricanes and how they form is vital to predicting and tracking these storms to ensure public safety. This teaching resource from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration provides curriculum materials to educate elementary students about what hurricanes are, the science of hurricane formation, and technologies used to track and monitor these storms. This Grade 3 curriculum covers 4 lessons (taught during 7 periods of 45 minutes each), and is guided by key questions, benchmarks, and learning outcomes. It also includes background information to ensure accuracy and a bibliography for further reference. This downloadable PDF document includes links to external resources, a glossary of key terms, and more. Elementary science teachers may employ this resource to educate their students on inclement weather and how their communities can prepare for it.
