Let's Talk About the Weather: 32 Places For Students to Explore

A few days ago, I was sitting outside my hotel in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, sipping fresh orange juice and looking at the beach. (Although I did not take the above photo, it accurately represents the view) Today, I am back at work, awaiting a huge snowstorm which will bring us up to 8 inches of snow. With all the extreme weather changes we have been experiencing lately, I decided to put together a collection of resources to teach students about the weather. (All ages are covered.) I also have created a pathfinder for my students on Natural Disasters in the News.
