From May through November each year, severe tropical storms wreak havoc around the world. Whether you call them hurricanes, typhoons, or tropical cyclones, these raging masses of wind and rain can bring damage and destruction—as well as excitement, news reports, and the perfect opportunity to examine weather phenomena.
Worldwide this year, several significant tropical cyclones have reached land, making this a perfect opportunity to teach this month’s GeoNews on tropical cyclones.
Project GeoNews on your interactive whiteboard or any white wall to explore the issue as a whole class, or allow students to read it individually. Be sure to look for the hidden links and popups throughout the text.
We know your students will enjoy delving into current events and making real-world connections in this interactive issue!
