Hurricane season affects much of the eastern/southeastern United States from June 1 – November 30. Since we live in Florida and have lived through our share of hurricanes and tropical storms, I thought it would be a good idea to teach my children a little bit about extreme weather and get them involved in creating a family emergency plan (plus, we were learning about extreme weather while reading The Wonderful Wizard of Oz).
The result is a fun “mini-book” piece called, “My Extreme Weather Plan & Checklist”.
This handy little guide includes the following:
- Checklist of Supplies
- Family Plan
- Hurricane Basics
- Watch vs. Warning – Know the Difference
- Additional Safety Information
- Extreme Weather Word Search
- Atlantic Hurricane Names
- Weather Riddler
- Family Emergency Plan Printable Cards
- Activity: “Tornado in a Bottle”
