Natural Disasters

Cross-Curriculum Activities

Great Review for Back-to-School

Proofreading has never been more FUN! Students help Detective Super Proofer find mistakes in high-interest passages about natural disasters. Students not only sharpen their proofreading skills but learn facts covering the following natural disaster cases (passages):

• Avalanches

• Blizzards

• Droughts

• Earthquakes

• Floods

• Hurricanes

• Landslides

• Sinkholes

• Tornadoes

• Tsunamis

• Volcanic Eruptions

• Wildfires

Student detectives look for the following types of errors in the passages:

• subject-verb agreement

• punctuation

• verb tenses

• capitalization

• spelling

This unit also includes:

• a Note to Student Detectives (complete step-by-step instructions)

• a Sample Lesson (to do together as a class before assigning individual or group work)

• a Cases Completed Sheet (to keep track of the cases solved)

• a Student Record Sheet (to keep track of the number of correct answers for each case)

• an Answer Key for each passage

• an Award Certificate for completion of the unit
