This 30-minute lesson investigates how thunderstorms are created, the four main characteristics of a thunderstorm – thunder and lightning, hail, wind, and rain – and their positive and negative effects. The students use the information gathered to individually answer ‘Thunderstorms: Friend or Foe?’ and are encouraged to debate their answers.
The students take part in a group activity to gather research from printed articles and discuss their points of view after individually answering the lessons chief question.
