- Periods 2, 5: You have 24 hours to submit your late work for the lesson 5 reflections. After that, you will be locked out and will not be able to submit your work.
- Periods 1, 7, 8: No homework.
Today we finished plotting the storms on our weather maps and then we began analyzing the maps looking for patterns. Here's what you need to do:
- Download handout 118.
- Answer all questions on handout 118.
- Use the links below under "Other Resources" to help you answer the questions. Use the maps as your evidence (instead of the groups as stated).
- How to use the hurricane map:
- Select an ocean basin (ex: such as the west Atlantic)
- Click on Advanced Filters and select particular hurricane categories. For example, if you want to only see category 5 storms, select that and apply.
- Look for general trends (What direction/paths do the hurricanes tend to move? Are stronger hurricanes in certain areas?)
- For the tornado map:
- Select different tornado strengths under the Fujita option.
- Tornadoes are mapped by starting location (by the pin) and their path is mapped by a line.
- Look for general trends (What direction do they tend to move? Are stronger tornadoes in certain areas?)
You received two handouts today:
- Handout 118: Plotting Weather Investigation
- Interactive Map of Hurricanes
