The post- activities include tracking hurricane activity in Louisiana, creating a map marking hurricane activity in Louisiana, interviewing a hurricane survivor, writing a news story based on the interview, and making a comparison of storms in Louisiana.
The museum activity will involve an exploration of the museum galleries to locate information on hurricanes. A weather forecast of an approaching hurricane will be announced.
