Natural Disasters: Water Vocabulary for Floods and Other Disasters PowerPoint Show
Understanding the world we live in, requires people to have a working knowledge about the physical world. Natural disasters happen everywhere. People in each area of the world need to be prepared for common local disasters. This involves a lot of areas, and one of the most important is vocabulary. Without knowing the specific vocabulary it is impossible to understand or really explain the full scope of an unfolding situation. This product pairs academic vocabulary pertaining to flooding with pictures, definitions, parts of speech, and then uses them in a sentence. It is a great tool to use before teaching a science unit on weather, or an ELA reading lesson using newspaper articles about floods or hurricanes. ** A follow-up 24 question vocabulary quiz is also available for purchase.
