Hurricane WebQuests
    • http://www.glencoe.com/sec/science/webquest/content/hurricanes.shtml : Suppose you live in a small coastal town in Texas. On the evening news, you hear about a tropical depression in the Gulf of Mexico that appears to be heading towards Texas. Although this disturbance is not yet classified as a tropical storm, your parents wonder if they should start to board up windows and bring in outdoor furniture to prepare for high winds and rain. When does a tropical depression become a tropical storm? When does a tropical storm become a hurricane? What is the definition of a hurricane? How does a hurricane form? What are the parts of a hurricane? When and where have the most destructive hurricanes hit?
    • http://www.ecy.ocps.net/images/technology/Hurricane%20Webquest/: How does extreme weather affect our lives? Students will use Kidspiration to organize their data into a web. Students should choose their hurricane name, path, speed and direction, and damage your hurricane will incur. You will describe your hurricane life in detail from a first-hand account using MS Word. Students will find and save photographs that illustrate the affect your hurricane had on people and the environment. Using a computer, the group will create a multimedia presentation to explain your hurricanography. More explicit than the next ones with specific roles:
    • http://asterix.ednet.lsu.edu/~edtech/webquest/canequest.htm : To know exactly how these systems act, we must first know how they are "born," so to speak. A hurricane goes through its own life cycle not much different than that of a person. To best understand this concept, we want you to take on the exciting task of assuming the role of the storm! In being the hurricane, you will describe your life in detail from a first-hand account! An "hurricanography", if you will.
