I use an activity I call the Science in the News Symposium when introducing topics to my classes. This activity can be found in my TpT store, KloseKlass. In this product, you’ll find a list of 8 articles to be used with middle school students related to natural hazards.
You can find the Science in the News Symposium product here: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Science-in-the-News-Symposium-3518273
This product only contains a list of links to each article. All of the articles in this list for MS-ESS3-2 are from https://www.sciencenewsforstudents.org/.
This product does not contain the articles, simply a list of articles with links and short links to the articles.
