Students continued working on the assignment of why we study natural hazards. Homework is to complete the assignment through part 3. DO NOT work beyond this point. We will do the rest Tuesday or Wednesday next week.


Today students started working on an assignment that is in the beginning stages of why we study natural hazards. This is work that is done in class so there is no homework.


We started the new unit today which is on natural hazards. The unit essential question is: How can science and engineering help protect people form natural hazards. We will be working towards answering this question for the next 8-10 weeks.


Below is the link to the study guide for the unit test.

The answers to the study guide are due Friday, November 8. The test will be next week Wednesday or Thursday. I’ll let you know for sure by Friday.
