These compare and contrast cards show what happens when a flood or a drought strikes. They can be used in a PowerPoint, a SmartBoard lesson, or by being printed out and laminated I used them after showing a YouTube Video found at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kFUVesgXLkY
After watching the video, I had students sort that cards. Next, I used my "First, Next, Last, So Mind Map" to have the student visualize the sequence. Finally, I had students write about what they had learned about floods and droughts.
