This pamphlet is meant to introduce the students to the main natural disasters that affect people throughout the world. They will learn the definitions of each and brainstorm how people should prepare and respond to a natural disaster. It also allows them to think of the ways that each natural disaster can affect the people.
This pamphlet can be used with any region of the world. My students typically complete this during our Asia unit.
You will need to provide your students with a resource for locating definitions and the areas that are affected by each natural disaster. If using a specific continent, you may want to have them use the "Climate" and "Natural Hazards" sections of the CIA World Factbook.
I have created a free, basic PowerPoint that goes through the definitions of each natural disaster. You will need to download this separately.
