Students in the third, fourth, and fifth grade Gifted Classes at PUE were able to apply their tracking skills as Tropical Storm Karen recently threatened several states along the Gulf Coast. The students kept a log of the latitude and longitude coordinates of the storm and then used the tracking map in the PUE Cafeteria to display the path of Karen.  While everyone was relieved that the storm never made landfall, the event itself was an important teaching tool that allowed the students to apply what they have learned through their hurricane unit.
