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.
