Students investigate whether global climate change will intensify the effects of hurricanes on coastal communities by determining the areas most vulnerable to hurricane surges by using topographic maps, a physical model, and a time series of hurricane data. Students then take on the roles of homeowners in a community and explore whether their home's position with respect to the topography and coast is protected from storm surge and high tide. A coastline map and student activity sheets are included. The resource is supported by teacher background information, assessments, and a scoring rubric. This is a module in the lesson series, Potential Consequences and Climate Variability and Change.
