The purpose of this lesson is to build upon the students’ previous know-ledge of changes within the earth’s features. This highly engaging lesson will give students an interactive and beginner approach on what natural disasters are and how the earth is effected by them. The lesson is aligned with the follow science standards:
S1.1 Ask "why" questions in attempts to seek greater understanding concerning objects and events they have observed and heard about.
2.1e Extreme natural events (floods, fires, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, hurricanes,tornadoes, and other severe storms) may have positive or negative impacts on living things.
S1.3 Develop relationships among observations to construct descriptions of objects and events and to form their own tentative explanations of what they have observed.
