If you live on or near the coast you are well aware that Hurricane Season is here. Having lived on the coast of North Carolina for 5 years and experiencing five hurricanes in those five years I have witnessed first hand the power of these storms. For many of our students though, hurricanes are something that they hear about on the news and really don’t understand how they work or why they are so damaging. There are some great resources within Discovery Education Science to help explain these concepts to your students. This includes allowing students to work with the conditions that impact hurricane development and strength.
