Nature is a powerful force! Convey the drama of hurricanes, typhoons, cyclones, tornadoes, and other powerful storms in a bold drawing.
Severe weather conditions are natural events that can lead to catastrophes. Students research information about one type of storm that especially intrigues them. A few details about hurricanes are provided for idea starters.
Bands of thunderstorms that spiral together over the ocean with winds that reach at least 74 mph (119 km/hr) are called hurricanes. What are some recent hurricanes? How are hurricanes named? Where do they usually form? How are they influenced by changes in the Earth’s climate?
Certain weather conditions must be in place for tropical depressions to become hurricanes. Only one in every 10 does. Find out what these conditions are and how they organize into a hurricane.
Besides rain and wind gusts up to 240 mph (386 k/hr), a hurricane creates a storm surge (a bulge in the ocean) causing a steady, fast increase in tides. Imagine the consequences of these conditions! Think about these powerful weather elements as you prepare to illustrate them.
On white paper, use Crayola Slick Stix™ super-smooth crayons to show what you learned about hurricanes or other severe weather. Students portray a scene depicting conditions such as the wind, rain, and storm surge. Blend the bright colors with a cotton swab for a realistic look.
