This is a great project for STORMS! Students are handed one of four storms (just photocopy, cut and pass out) and they research the causes/effects, regions affected, storm preparedness, etc.
Then, students can use their research to create an infographic (example attached), PowerPoint, Prezi, Booklet, e-Book, Poster, etc. The possibilities are endless, as this is a very open-ended project.
Four storms included:
Each checklist is 1/2 Sheet. Each graphic organizer is a full page, but students can choose the one that they like the best.
