Earth and Human Activity
This kit introduces third grade students to some of the natural disasters which affect our world. Lightning, earthquakes and tornadoes are three of the natural disasters we see occurring in our world and devastating lives on a daily basis. This kit allows students to explore these phenomena with real, interactive activities that encourage everyone to participate. Students will build a seismograph to measure earthquake activity, as well as have an opportunity to invent weather related hazard protections. Students will also be asked to write a sales pitch selling the advantages of a basement for tornado protection. A short assessment will be given at the end to measure each students understanding of the topics presented. This kit contains enough materials for twenty five to thirty students or can be customized for a home schooled student.
