Severe Weather Foldable
You will complete an “8-door” book foldable on severe weather, due at the end-of-class on Mon, Dec-15. As this is also the Firm Deadline, no late assignments will be accepted.
You will work in pairs to research information on severe weather, but each student must create their own foldable. A quiz based on this foldable (and other classroom activities on severe weather) will be given during finals Wed/Thur Dec-17/18. You will not be able to retake the quiz, your score will be final.
You will use the internet to research the 7 types of severe weather in your foldable. You will have a work session each day for five days, you may also choose to research at home. In class, you will share a chromebook with a partner to complete your research. You can use any quality web resource, but your main resource should be the NOAA NSSL website (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration – National Severe Storms Laboratory).
