Hurricane Irma Worksheet

Hurricane Irma Worksheet

A 2-page worksheet where students search the internet to provide information about Hurricane Irma, its impact and human responses to it. Useful in conjunction with the "Tracking Hurricane irma" worksheet also available on my shop. A cheaper option may be to buy the "Hurricane Irma bundle" that includes this worksheet, Tracking Hurricane Irma worksheet and the worksheet that covers general information about hurricanes.

Investigating Hurricanes

Investigating Hurricanes

A 2-page worksheet that requires students to find out general information about hurricanes from the internet (websites provided but you may want your students to go to other websites). Page 1 shows on the preview. 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.

Hurricane - formation, impact and management

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.
