The Mystery of Sunken Ships - How Accurate is the Weather Forecast? A Week Long Field Experience Gr. 4-8


Become a storm chaser as you explore the principles of tornadoes, cyclones and severe weather in order to identify how shipwrecks are caused on the Great Lakes. Begin your adventure by taking weather related data of storm boundaries right on the coast of Lake Michigan. Next, snorkel in a quarry to find two sunken boats and their debris fields, and determine if the wrecks were weather related. Lastly, board a dive boat on Lake Michigan to find wrecks off the coast of Milwaukee.
