Yr 12 Hurricane Katrina
« on: April 15, 2010, 07:24:28 AM »
For my coastal flooding case study with year 12 I'm doing Hurricane Katrina. Just not sure what I could do with them to make it an interesting and fun lesson. Any ideas??

You could do a plotting exercise using Google Earth (see instructions here http://www.geography.org.uk/projects/ks4ict/idea7)

Alternatively Tony Cassidy has provided some excellent materials http://www.radicalgeography.co.uk/weatherhazards.html

Plotting is usually good - iirc there were some resources in that sort of thing to do by hand on the NHC
I loved the words you wrote to me/But that was bloody yesterday

I'd recommend the Trouble with Water for a human perspective, there is some choice language, but it provides a brilliant human perspective-

I think the U2/GreenDay video makes a great starter for thinking about the response to the disaster
