Natural Disasters

Our Natural Disasters lesson plan teaches students about different types of natural disasters and their characteristics. Students practice identifying natural disasters based on descriptions.

Our Natural Disasters lesson plan introduces students to different types of natural disasters that occur throughout the world. During this lesson, students are asked to complete a creative writing assignment in which they imagine that they are traveling through a country and encounter 10 natural disasters and have to describe each one; this allows the students to use the lesson material in a creative way. Students are also asked to tell the natural disaster each statement describes on the line provided in order to demonstrate their understanding of the lesson and the different types of natural disasters.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define natural disaster, identify the different types, describe each disaster and list their effects.

    This is a great resource and complement to my current unit of study. I especially liked the way it was designed from the beginning activity with the pictures to the practice page and then the homework handwork. All of it gave the students a great understanding of natural resources. I am sharing this work with colleagues.
