This is a student guided research-based project for students to explore natural disasters, specifically wildfires, flooding, earthquakes, landslides, and volcanic eruptions. Included for each disaster:
-graphic organizer for research notes; students will research 4 main questions for each disaster, examining how we can reduce the impact on humans and the environment, how it is related to weather/why the disaster happens, and a real life example.
-template for problem, solution, and design; students will create a design to lessen the impact of natural disasters on humans and the environment.
-map to identify the most common regions/states that each disaster happens; students will identify where disasters occur and why.
-suggested online resources for student research
