Stormy Weather: Home

Source Requirements

You will need at least:

  • One print source. This can include your textbook.
  • One news source.  A database is good place to look.
  • One diagram of what is happening in the atmosphere during the storm.  You may use your textbook for this.
  • Two photographs of the damaging effects of the storm.  Britannica Image Quest should be where you look first. 

You will use NoodleTools to cite all your sources including your textbook and images or diagrams you use in your project.
