The resources are vetted for accuracy and include lesson plans, curriculum, games, and fact sheets. Students will learn about the science involved in natural disasters such as droughts, earthquakes, floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, and wildfires. Use the resources to help teach planned curriculum or to help students learn what to do during a disaster or national emergency. CLICK ON THE """"DISASTERS"""" TAB TO ACCESS RESOURCES."
