On Page 2 there is a question on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale, a world map where students are asked to show those areas in the world where hurricanes occur, and responses individuals and families can make to hurricanes (before, during and after).

Tracking Hurricane Maria - latitude/longitude exercise / real time case study in hurricane tracking.

Tracking Hurricane Maria - latitude/longitude exercise / real time case study in hurricane tracking.

This worksheet requires students to map the track of Hurricane Maria as it moves though the Caribbean. The first four positions of the hurricane are given in the accompanying table. Students can follow the path of the hurricane using information from the website: https://www.wunderground.com/hurricane/atlantic/2017/hurricane-maria and map its position over the next few days. As well as a mapping skills exercise you may find this useful in engaging your students if you are presently doing a unit of work on natural hazards. When Maria has run its course I will replace this worksheet with information that will then be available.
