Extreme Forecasting

Using a PowerPoint presentation, the teacher introduces the concepts of tsunamis and hurricanes. Students individually complete a worksheet that compares and contrasts the basic characteristics of tsunamis and hurricanes, as well as how technology is used to monitor them. In small groups, students use the Internet to research how technology is used to monitor tsunamis and hurricanes that might affect anyone who lives, works, or plays in or near the ocean in Hawai‘i.
