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.

Comparing the weather of St Lucia and the UK

Comparing the weather of St Lucia and the UK

This resource is designed for KS2 children. It is part of a wider unit called Exploring St Lucia which is designed to teach children about a contrasting non-European country. First the presentation introduces children to the tropical climate zone (dry and wet seasons) and its associated weather (i.e. high temperatures and high rainfall). It compares this with temperate climates such as that of the UK. Children are also encouraged to interpret data from a climate graph for St Lucia. Finally, other aspects of a tropical climate are covered including tropical storms and hurricanes. The accompanying differentiated true/false activity helps children to recap what they have learned about the climates of St Lucia and the UK. There is also an extension activity. If you like this resource, please review it. If you have any suggestions or feedback, contact me at eddiebray@yahoo.co.uk
