Engage your students in these independent science centers designed to give your students content background on tsunamis in a fun and engaging way. 6 centers are included.
Center 1: Define it: Students will work on tsunami-relevant vocabulary
Center 2: Illustrate it: Students will illustrate a tsunami approaching a coastline city.
Center 3: Research it: Students use some online resources to learn more about tsunamis.
Center 4: Read About It: Students read a passage about the 2004 tsunami in Indonesia. They then choose questions to answer, and also have the opportunity to write some of their own questions.
Center 5: Model It: Students will create a simple model of a tsunami using a baking pan, sand, and paper houses. Activity sheets are provided.
Center 6: Write About It: Students assume the role of a newspaper writer and write an article about a tsunami that strikes the coast of Japan.
These centers provide 2 hours of learning for your students. This can be broken up into time segments of your choosing, depending on your time for science. These centers also make great sub plans in a pinch.
