Description

This is a non-prep Google Slides lesson about the hurricanes with a particular focus on Hurricane Ida. Hurricane Ida was a fierce weather event that raged through the U.S. in the summer of 2021. This handy resource is created with a 30 minute lesson delivery in mind. Teachers will need to read through the material first to see if this time frame suits your teaching style and pace so that you can prepare not to run over or under. There are 17 slides in total, however, it is fine to remove or keep what suits your cohort of students for your own personal classroom use. (In case you are concerned about the 'death by Powerpoint' scenario - the activities and videos are included in this slide count. :) This lesson fits in well with learning about the environment and climate change topics.

I designed this 30 minute lesson about hurricanes based upon when I have to teach topic but there may be an unexpected school visitor, performance or outing. We all know we can get thrown curve balls during the school week. In these kind of situations, I would be mindful of running out of time. My colleagues and I would have to squeeze a lesson into a half hour slot while maintaining the same amount of quality content and meeting as many of the objectives as was possible. We often find ourselves 'time poor' on occasion due to circumstances beyond our control.

 

This lesson could also be be used as a bonus lesson, a time filler, a last minute substitute teacher / supply teacher activity or even to be shared with a student who is away for a long period of time. If a school visit to a local museum or park is cancelled due to bad weather - no problem, these short lessons are great resource.

 

The principle intention of this short half hour lesson, is to expose students to information so that if you decide to learn more at a later date, they have some foundational knowledge.

 

There is a lot of information packed into these Google Slides which have original artwork and a colorful, engaging style. Each slide is set out in a way that it can be taught by a teacher or classroom assistant without requiring lots of background knowledge. The information provided will introduce and touch upon the main topic of forest fires. It also includes short embedded videos, photographs and activities.


You can, alternatively add this to an existing unit or project and teach it in your own time frame.

Suggested directions are as follows:

  1. Read through some slides or children can read through slides if working remotely.
  2. Take some suggestions during input time (via Zoom or in person during class time) - there are spaces to jot down notes.
  3. Activities - there is a place here for copying the Google Doc in your folder for your own class and differentiating by deleting activities to suit different ability groups.
