Students finished their work on floods and that natural hazard was discussed today in class. Tomorrow they will begin an assignment on “Forecasting Natural Hazards”. There will be no homework over the break.
Today students started work on floods, which is the first of five natural hazards that they will learn about. They will continue to learn about floods for the next 3-4 days. No homework today.
Students finished their “Why Study Natural Hazards” work yesterday and they were turned in today. The students were given their unit challenge scenario today and got into their groups. Each group was randomly assigned a state that they will be studying off and on throughout the unit on which natural hazards occur in their state, how often and the severity of them. This all leads up to the group unit project they will do at the end of the unit. No homework today.
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.
