Fifth Grade students have been learning about catastrophic events in history. They learned how this event impacted society and why it was defined as catastrophic. Students worked with teammates to come up with a fun and interesting way to share this information with their classmates. This could have been through a newscast, creating a model, using drawings, creating a poster, etc.  The presentation needed to include the following information.

  • Define your event

  • Explain what the area was like before the catastrophic event

    • Main natural resources

    • Climate

    • Population

  • Explain the catastrophic event

    • When did it happen? How long did it last?

    • Where did it happen?

    • What happened? Why?

  • Explain how the area changed because of the event

    • Natural resources

    • Economics ($)

    • Clean up

    • Health/Casualties/Injuries
