Hurricane Irene has hit the East Coast and will be ripping it's way north like a buzzsaw. Perhaps, you've heard some of the questions from your kids already...
What's a hurricane?What do we need to do? We'll still have our Playstation, right? Of course, that last one is a little tricky to get through, but there's another chance to explain electricity.
This time though we're talking hurricanes, and if you're looking for a great way to teach children about hurricanes, Sylvan Dell Publishing is offering a free e-book, Ready, Set . . . WAIT!: What Animals Do Before a Hurricane for the next few days. Ready, Set…WAIT! deals with what costal animals do before a storm hits. Of course, it has Sylvan Dell's free educational section in the back and tons of teaching activities, quizzes, and related websites on the book’s homepage.
