Today we are investigating Severe Weather systems on Earth. We will be completing a webquest activity in groups of 3 to investigate and learn more about severe weather (specifically - Tornadoes, Thunderstorms and Hurricanes).
There is no homework this weekend. Have a good weekend and get outside to enjoy the nice weather the high pressure system that is over us right now is bringing us (Cool and Dry).
