Weather: Extreme Physical Change

For the final lesson of Chapter 12 (and Unit 3!), students applied their understanding of temperature and pressure to the extreme weather example of hurricanes.  We began class with a video describing how hurricanes form:

After the video, we briefly reviewed the lesson objectives in the Lesson 67 PowerPoint.  Students then received a packet containing the Lesson 67 Worksheet, a handout showing the anatomy of a hurricane, a list of extreme weather occurrences from 2005, and a graph of global temperature changes from 1880-2012.  For homework, students were assigned textbook questions 1 and 4.
