Hurricane Formation

Students model a tropical depression and a hurricane using a glass of water and their own breath. They then monitor a tropical depression on screen as it turns into a hurricane. These observations allow students to illustrate and describe a tropical depression, tropical storm, and hurricane. Students complete part of a K-W-L chart to record what they learned in this lesson.
