This fantastic bundle allows students to investigate the causes and effects of tsunamis. Students begin the lesson with a debate answering the following question, "Are tsunamis predictable? If so, how?" This allows us to gauge students' prior knowledge in addition to activating students' autonomous thinking. Students are then introduced to the concepts of a tsunami's velocity, amplitude, characteristics, warning signals, safety tips, etc. We discuss the 2004 Sumatra tsunami and watch two short videos covering this tsunami, which lead to the idea that animals are able to sense tsunamis before humans can.
The following items are included in this bundle:
- Tsunamis Lesson Plan
- Tsunamis PowerPoint Presentation (24 slides)
- Tsunamis Guided Notes
- Tsunamis Quiz
