This program begins with an explanation of the three terms used around the world to describe these destructive tropical weather systems. Using animated graphics, students will explore the life cycle of a hurricane, from its beginnings as a disorganized system of clouds and rain to the storms that can cause devastation to coastal and inland communities around the world. Students examine significant storms and learn how hurricanes get their names. The program concludes with an interactive hurricane tracking exercise.
