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.

Climbers need to be prepared for all eventualities and carry suitable equipment’s with them at all times and all these weather types can strike within the same one hour! These worksheets draw on the students senses as to describe these weather conditions.

What Is The Future Of Everest Base Camp?

What Is The Future Of Everest Base Camp?

Mount Everest has two base camps; one on its south side in Nepal and one on the north in Tibet. Located on the south side at 5,360 meters is Nepal’s South Base Camp, situated within Sagarmatha National Park and is also a World Heritage Site. This camp is very basic but used by climbers during their ascent and descent of Everest. This trek is one of the most popular routes in the Himalayas and is hiked by thousands of people every year. The students task is to imagine a proposal has been made to build a more permanent settlement at the Everest Base Camp. They have two tasks to complete: - Task One: A written piece of work detailing the views of the different groups using the area, including your own point of view - Task Two: Drawing a detailed plan of your idea for a village which would suit the groups who use the Everest Base Camp and the facilities they would need. Your choice of design and facilities will need to be explained.
