There are a number of hurricanes & future hurricanes (tropical storms & depressions) being tracked in the Atlantic Ocean this week, including Hurricane Earl.  Since we've been learning about latitudet & longitude ... I changed our plan for today so we could bring up these current events which our famalies might be hearing about in the news!

Link about Hurricane tracking from class (National Hurricane Center; has a number of up-to-date maps showing variety of maps related to tracking these storms):

Link to thermal satellite image with ocean temperatures from class:
found though a Google search for "water temperature ocean"

One more Earth Science topic "in the news":  Volcano in Indonesia is becoming active again after 400 years of sitting there quietly!  Link to news story on NPR... check it out!
