Severe Weather Preparedness


Are you prepared in the event of severe weather? Now is your chance to be a young meteorologist and help our friend Owlie prepare for all sorts of severe weather conditions. Players who complete the game earn a Young Meteorologist Certificate.


Be a young meteorologist and play the Severe Weather Preparedness Adventure, designed by NOAA.

Answer this question in a discussion post

Q: How is severe weather connected to the health of the ocean? 

Once you have made a submission for the assignment, your badge will appear the next time you log-in!  

Learning Objectives

To understand what conditions cause severe weather and how to be prepared in case of an emergency

This activity may be used to support the following learning objectives and competencies 

GRADE: All Grades


Science K: Daily and seasonal changes affect all living things

Science 1: Observable patterns and cycles occur in the local sky and landscape

Science 2: Water is essential to all living things, and it cycles through the environment

Science 3: thermal energy can be produced and transferred

Science 4: Energy can be transformed

Science 7: Earth and its climate have changed of over geological time

Science 8: The behaviour of matter can be explained by kinetic molecular theory and atomic theory

Science 8: Energy can be transferred as both a particle and a wave

Science 9: The biosphere, geosphere, hydrosphere, and atmosphere are interconnected, as matter cycles and energy flows through them

Science 10: Energy is conserved and its transformation can affect living things and the environment

Earth Sciences 11: the transfer of energy through the atmosphere creates weather and this transfer is affected by climate change

Earth Sciences 11: the distribution of water has a major influence on weather and climate

Science for Citizens 11: Scientific processes and knowledge inform our decisions and impact our daily lives.

Science for Citizens 11: Scientific understanding enables humans to respond and adapt to changes locally and globally

Science for Citizens 11: Scientific knowledge can be used to develop procedures, techniques, and technologies that have implications for places of employment

Environmental Science 12: Human activities cause changes in the global climate system
