Product Description
Students read a brief background on the hurricane that devastated Galveston, Texas in 1900 and a first hand account of the experience. They answer 10 questions and analyze 9 images based on 3 sets of provided prompts. This would be great for a sub and the answers are included where appropriate.

Sample questions include:
--Discuss why some people didn't see the danger they were in, or were reluctant to leave when the danger made itself known.
--Using context clues, give at least 4 examples of what some of the "debris" would have been.
--Imagine you are in Milton's situation. Write a solid 2-3 paragraphs about your feelings, the challenges you face in trying to rebuild your life, and how you find a sense of normalcy again after this tragedy.
