Polar Vortex


Found in: science, 6-8, 9-12

Record low temperatures in the U.S. in early 2014 added a new phrase to the American lexicon: polar vortex. Along with that "new" term many questions have followed:  What is a polar votex? Does it affect climate change or is it a result of climate change? What does it look like?  How long does a polar vortex last?  These resources and activities not only answer your questions but will help explain the origin and effects of polar vortexes to your grade 6-12 science learners.
