Wicked Weather

Do your students understand the violent weather that we have experienced this year?  It is overwhelming for me to think about the life-changing destruction from these storms!  Here are a few Websites that can help you discuss weather in your classroom.

FEMA for Kids is a great place to start!  Listen to Herman the Hermit Crab as he tries to find a disaster-proof shell!  You can download the entire story and listen to Herman as he reads!  

You may want to order freebies from FEMA to use in your classroom next year!  Here is the link for mailing in your order.

Check out KidstormKidstorm is a production of Sky Diary, Chris Kridler's site devoted to storm chasing and weather photographs.
Head on over to Weather Whiz Kids!  You will find a great tornado video and even lesson plans!  Crystal Wicker has developed a wonderful Website!
