Hurricane Tracking

Clip to ScrapBook #3

I did that when I taught 5th grade a long time ago. I had 2 jars - one with latitude numbers and one with longitude numbers. I had a big map and the kids had individual ones (or you could put an individual one on an elmo). Each day we'd pull a number from each jar and track our fictional hurricane on the map. The kids loved wondering where it was going! If you wanted to do it all in one day, you still could. It was also a good time to talk about each area it was near, preparedness strategies, etc... You can also let the kids name the hurricane.

If you need a chart, the NOAA website has them: https://www.nhc.noaa.gov/tracking_charts.shtml
