SEACOOS: Virtual Hurricane Classroom

This collection of resources on hurricanes includes a selection of activities in which students investigate storm surge, learn hurricane terminology, build and use their own weather instruments, and learn how to locate and plot points on a map using latitude and longitude. There is also a poster that explains the causes of hurricanes, hazards associated with them, and hurricane facts for the southeast Atlantic United States. The poster can be viewed online or ordered as a hardcopy. Other materials include a downloadable, printable chart for tracking the paths of Atlantic hurricanes and an online glossary of hurricane terminology.
