Whos Watching for You

After hearing a story and PowerPoint presentation on technologies that the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) uses to monitor hurricanes, students choose flashcards about one method of technology that NOAA uses and present this technology to their small group. They compare and contrast methods and complete a record sheet on the six types of technologies. Students complete part of a K-W-L chart to record what they learned in this lesson.
