The difficulties in predicting landfall of a hurricane are modeled In this kinesthetic activity. Students predict the trajectory of a ball rolled to their partner. They conduct several trials, predicting the path of the ball, observing the actual path, and recording their results. The student worksheet includes questions that connect the activity to the observations and data that meteorologists consider when predicting the path of a hurricane. The resource is part of the teacher's guide accompanying the video, NASA SCI Files: The Case of the Phenomenal Weather. Lesson objectives supported by the video, additional resources, teaching tips and an answer sheet are included in the teacher's guide.
