Mrs. Seal’s fifth grade Discover students completed a multimedia program called “Hurricane Strike.”  Participants became virtual houseguests of the Castillo family in Fort Walton Beach, Florida.  While on their vacation, the students traveled through a series of interactive programs that included them in preparing for a hurricane, experiencing the hurricane, and clean up after the hurricane.  Participants were introduced to many basic concepts of atmospheric science, climate, and geography while learning some important and possibly life-saving safety and preparedness skills.  The students filled out a Family Disaster Plan with their parents from newly gained knowledge that they hope they will never need to use.
