|Hurricane Strike! Hurricane Science & Safety for Students|
This is a multimedia interactive simulation that teaches students about emergency preparedness, disaster safety, and weather and storm science. In the simulation, students visit a Florida family and end up preparing for and riding out a hurricane which hits during the visit. Students can track the storm on a map, watch weather updates, prepare emergency supplies, and develop a disaster emergency plan. Additional materials for teachers to use with students in the classroom are available. The site also offers facts about historically important hurricanes between simulation segments. Contributors to the site include The Federal Emergency Management Administration, The National Weather Service, The Weather Channel, and the American Red Cross.
