Description

Natural Hazards: This resource has students analyzing and interpreting data on natural hazards. This resource includes a slide show on natural hazards and natural disasters. Students will analyze data from maps to look for patterns. Students will look at how scientists use data to mitigate the effects of natural hazards. Natural hazards such as earthquakes, tsunamis, storms floods, wildfires, volcanic eruptions, and the spreading of infectious diseases will be discussed. This is a HUGE Resource with over 70 slides and pages!

This resource includes:

  • A slide show on natural hazards
  • Strategic notetaking guide on the slide show
  • Five pages of informational text
  • Response pages
  • Interactive notebook flaps
  • Four Map Task Cards
  • Analyzing Data Pages
  • A hands-on lab
  • Lab Page
  • Lesson plans
  • Suggested Schedule
  • Quiz
  • Answer keys for everything!

In this unit, we will take an in-depth look at earthquakes. Students will understand how and why earthquakes happen, how scientists study them, and efforts to mitigate against earthquake damage. 

This unit also has a lesson on the Global Pandemic Covid 19. Students will look at data from around the world and analyze it. If you feel this topic is too sensitive for your students to study, you can skip these two pages.

Information about the Ring of Fire and plate tectonics in relation to volcanic activity and earthquakes will also be studied.

Climate change as a factor in natural hazards such as drought, superstorms, wildfires, and floods is discussed.

This resource is designed to address the following standards:

NGSS MS-ESS3-2.

Analyze and interpret data on natural hazards to forecast future catastrophic events and inform the development of technologies to mitigate their effects. [Clarification Statement: Emphasis is on how some natural hazards, such as volcanic eruptions and severe weather, are preceded by phenomena that allow for reliable predictions, but others, such as earthquakes, occur suddenly and with no notice, and thus are not yet predictable. Examples of natural hazards can be taken from interior processes (such as earthquakes and volcanic eruptions), surface processes (such as mass wasting and tsunamis), or severe weather events (such as hurricanes, tornadoes, and floods). Examples of data can include the locations, magnitudes, and frequencies of the natural hazards. Examples of technologies can be global (such as satellite systems to monitor hurricanes or forest fires) or local (such as building basements in tornado-prone regions or reservoirs to mitigate droughts).]

Utah SEEd Standard 8.4.5

Analyze and interpret patterns of the occurrence of natural hazards to forecast future catastrophic events, and investigate how data is used to develop technologies to mitigate their effects. Emphasize how some natural hazards, such as volcanic eruptions and severe weather, are preceded by phenomena that allow prediction, but others, such as earthquakes, may occur without warning.
