        Seasonal Science: Hurricane

        Why do hurricanes get their own season? The reason for the season is because of the three requirements for a hurricane to form. Precursor storms off the coast of Africa that travel on currents, warm ocean temperatures, and low wind shear due to the location of the jet stream are only available between June and November. Therefore, this is the season for hurricanes. This video and lesson integrate essential vocabulary for the NC science curriculum. The explanation of this extreme storm includes an engaging way to introduce students to the factors that affect our weather like temperature, air pressure, moisture and wind.
