Extreme Weather Project

Extreme Weather Investigation Project

Students will research one of three weather related hazards: hurricanes, blizzards, or tornadoes, to learn more about these types of extreme weather and how they affect our lives. Students will learn more about what each type of extreme weather is, where it is likely to occur, how to stay safe, extreme weather in the news, and other interesting facts about their topic. Then students will create a Google Slides presentation to share their learning.
