This Unit Overview provides resources to teach students about natural disasters in light of the current events. Resources include vocabulary terms, activity suggestions for many subjects for cross-curricular integration, video clips, news articles and books.
The driving questions of the unit are:
- What is the lasting impact of natural disasters on people and the environment that they live in?
- How can we learn from and help those affected by natural disasters?
