Hurricane - formation, impact and management

This is one of the most active and destructive hurricane season in the Atlantic Ocean area on records. Thousands of people (including British nationals) have been affected by hurricanes this hurricane season. There is never a better opportunity to teach about hurricanes whether or not it's on your LS for T1. Here we have three (3) lessons that explore the science behind hurricane formation, an analysis of the social and economic impact of hurricanes and finally a look at ways hurricanes can be managed to minimise the loss of lives. All the resources to deliver the lessons are included with the lessons. Just download and teach.
