The reading the weather unit has been really fun and I have put a lot of effort into this project. I enjoyed this unit because I did this with my classmates and my friends. It took a lot of work to put together. First, we were assigned groups and topics to research about. Next, we picked up a few books to read. We did some research on the chromebooks too. After that, we copied the information into a slideshow and tweaked the words so that we can fit it into 15 seconds. We also had to make an intro and a conclusion. We had to memorize our slides and figure out who is going to say the intro and conclusion. We did lots of rehearsals and had to fix a few things if people think that we need to change something. Last, we did one more rehearsal and we were ready to rumble!!!
Here is my script and slideshow that I worked so hard on.
|There is a list of things that you should do before, during and after a hurricane happens. You would need lots of things in some sort of backpack. You need a flashlight, lots of extra batteries, NOAA radio with tone alert, food, 1 gallon of water per person a day, and other stuff.|
|You need to make sure that there is nothing that would blow away because that object could act as a missile and knock someone out cold. If there are very high winds, sea levels rise, dark clouds appear, there will probably be an upcoming hurricane.
|Scientists use the Saffir – Simpson scale to measure hurricanes. There are different levels of hurricanes. There’s a category 1,2,3,4 and 5. 1 is the weakest and 5 is strongest. A category 1 hurricane will have little damage.|
