In this activity, learners discover how the extent of various wind speeds changes in each of the four quadrants around a hurricane.
Why do Hurricanes go Counterclockwise in the Northern Hemisphere?
In this kinesthetic activity, learners will play a game with a ball to demonstrate the Coriolis force, which partly explains why hurricanes in the Northern Hemisphere rotate counterclockwise.
Weather Stations: Storms
In this activity, learners test how cornstarch and glitter in water move when disturbed. Learners compare their observations with videos of Jupiter's and Earth's storm movements.
The Return of El NinoAdd to list Details
In this activity related to climate change and data analysis, learners examine temperature and precipitation data to determine if climate variations are due to El Niño.
