Thunderstorms – Short Lesson

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.

Willson Education

Hi, I'm a Geography teacher with experience educating at various levels across the south of England, ranging from mainstream schools, SEN and extra-curricular tuition. I also have experience in teaching Humanities, English and PSHE topics, as well as having worked as a cover supervisor and an exams invigilator. I've also had the chance whist studying and practising Geography to visit some fabulous locations around the world such as the Sahara Dessert, the American Heartland for my dissertation and Germany as part of my degree study programme. All of my experiences so far have added to my passion for the subject and I continue to produce and edit educational material today with a view to passing on my enthusiasm for the subject as well as inspiring new Geographers.
