This is an advanced unit that describes the causes, formation, lifecycle, and classification of hurricanes.  It is a long unit that requires a few days or even a week, to get through properly.  It could probably be done with 5th or 6th graders with help, but it won't be one that they will be able to understand alone due to the complexity.

If there are links within the course they may click them as they come up - OR they can return to this page and access them here.  In addition, there are suggested supplemental activities listed below that they can do afterward.
