Letter From Truman

Hi, Kids!

We are in the middle of hurricane season, which seems like a good time to learn more about these impressive storms. Did you know that hurricanes can only form under specific circumstances? Northern Africa is where hurricanes commonly form. Another hurricane fact – there is an organization in charge of naming hurricanes. Learn more about hurricanes in the “Connections” section.

Hurricanes can really stir up the waters in the ocean and bring a lot of debris to the shore. It is common to find driftwood, among other things, on the beach after a hurricane or rain storm. Some people consider driftwood a nuisance. Other people see it as a way to express their creativity. The “Cultural Connections” section explores driftwood art.

Northern Africa is not only a source of hurricanes, it is home to the Sahara Desert, too. One of the creatures found in the Sahara is the deathstalker scorpion. These scorpions have a powerful sting. They live in burrows under the sand. You can read more about them in the “Wildville” section.

I Hope your school year is off to a great start!
