    Thank you Victoria! I've actually been trying to infuse JavaScript Coding into my NGSS Standards, so this is perfect!

    Build your basic understanding of El Niño.
    • The El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) Cycle: Dr. Vernon Kousky of NOAA/CPC covers the identification and global weather impacts associated with both phases of ENSO in this COMET Webcast.
    • NOAA ENSO Blog: Keep tabs on the current state of El Niño through the blog at the Climate.gov web site.
    • PBS NOVA Tracking El Nino: This resource includes information about the science of El Niño. Note that it was developed around 2000, so the focus is on events that occurred in the 20th Century with a particular emphasis on the 1997 event.
    Find more El Niño educational resources.

    • Twister in a Jar: This simple model demonstrates how a vortex forms. After students have tried the activity, discuss aspects of the model that are useful in explaining how a tornado forms and aspects that might not be accurate. Remind students that all models are wrong, but some models are useful. Discuss whether this model is useful for explaining how tornadoes form.
    • Make a Tornado!: In this hands-on activity, students model the atmospheric conditions that cause a vortex to form.
    Explain how tornadoes form and the types of tornadoes through videos, online reading, and an in-class presentation.
    • Tornadoes - Oh My!: Walk students through this tornado presentation or engage your students to be the presenters having each student present one or two slides.
    • How Tornadoes Form: This short reading provides a step-by-step description of how tornadoes form. Engage students to create trivia questions based on this article that they will ask other students.
    • Tornadoes 101: This National Geographic video (2:55) demonstrates how tornadoes form.
    • The Enhanced Fujita Scale rates the strength of tornadoes in the United States and Canada based on damage caused by wind estimates (not measurements).
    • Tornado Strength: This article provides an overview of the strength of tornadoes.
    • These resources can be incorporated as homework, enhancements, or extensions.[​IMG]
      • Tropical Severe Local Storms COMET Module provides fantastic background for teachers or highly motivated advanced readers.
      • A Native American Take on Tornadoes: This NPR Protojournalist article offers a history of how the Kiowa people monitored and recorded tornadoes in the early 1900's.
      • Tornado Glossary: VORTEX2's useful science glossary is a good resource for advanced reading levels.
      • Tornado Alley full-length Imax movie about tornadoes and the people that chase them might be good homework before launching into the Tornado Teaching Box.
      • Tornado Education Resource: This NOAA webpage has tons of explanations, resources, and activities for curriculum planning.
      • TRMM satellite mission: This article shows 3-D precipitation and tornado data gathered in southeastern United States by NASA's TRMM satellite mision. Ask students what we can learn about tornadoes through these 3-D color profiles. What story do the colors of radar reflectivity tell us? Where is the highest concentration of precipitation in the storm? Lowest? Why would a storm at this scale occur in the southeastern United States? Would the 3-D color profiles look different in other geographical areas in the United States? If so, how would they expect a 3-D color profile to look in places such as Kansas? New York? California
      • Enhanced Fujita-Scale Online Training Modules by the National Weather Service has activities and assessments for highly interested/advanced students.
      • How do NCAR researchers use computers to study tornadoes? Find out how Dr. Tornado and her colleagues use the massive computers at the NCAR-Wyoming Supercomputing Center to uncover clues about tornadoes.

    Hi folks, I hope everyone is safe and healthy. Here's a brand new free resource that I hope is helpful. It's a website for my video learning series, “Dune’s Island.” Within it you can freely access all the episodes, support documentaries and tie-in curriculum (like vocabulary, math problems, writing prompts and more.)

    I’ll be expanding the site with all kinds of activities and more cool documentaries, so please be sure to bookmark it. In the meantime, any and all feedback is welcome and very much appreciated. Enjoy and stay safe.
