Sky and Weather

After a musical opening with Paul and his friends, Christine leads students in a simple a memorable active song connecting the terms used to describe the importance of being ready for a weather emergency. Next, Two students, Abby and Amina, discuss with their teacher various types of severe weather emergencies, and how to prepare for one. At their homes, Abby and Amina gather materials that they think will help them (and their families) be prepared in case severe weather strikes. Back in the lab, the students and their teacher evaluate the materials gathered as being appropriate or not appropriate for a severe weather emergency kit.
