QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS:
I've been using your Natural Distasters unit for a geography class I am teaching and I love it. It's exactly what we are looking at and studying, and requires only minimal modification to bring it up to my grade level. However, when looking through it, the copy I downloaded was missing the powerpoint presentation for the global warming lesson (Lesson 13). Is there anyway for me to get this powerpoint?
I'm glad it is working well for you!
When we taught this unit we used a PowerPoint we found on tpt for the global warming lesson. It was not one I created so I did not feel it appropriate to include that one in the package.
I took a look and found the link to the PowerPoint I used.

We are going to begin an integrated English/Humanities Natural Disasters Unit in a few weeks time. Your extensive unit looks as if it could be ideal, but I'm interested to know how much Language Arts is incorporated in this unit. Our biggest struggle is to give both subject areas justice, as we do very easily get carried away with the Humanities side of things. Are there specific English skills being taught through this unit?
Looking forward to hearing from you soon.
Hi Leeannes, I created this unit for a rotary class. The colleague that used it wanted it focused mainly on the humanities side - how these natural disasters are affecting humans. There is a graphing (math) assignment in it and some newspaper articles to read and discuss. We were focusing primarily on note-taking skills, hence the student note-taking booklets as we saw this as something needed in our students. I hope this helps!
