Before tackling Eight Days: A Story of Haiti, and Dark Water Rising, make sure the students have some background knowledge on earthquakes and hurricanes!
This packet was adapted from the EngageNY Module 4, Unit 1. All the most important parts were pulled and simplified for student success.
As the teacher, your only duty will be to preview the student packet, download and print the suggested images for the gallery walk, and to Google the videos Earthquakes 101 and Hurricanes 101.
Enjoy! Our fifth graders were fascinated!
