Storm That Drowned a City

Students use a map to locate New Orleans and watch a video on the destruction of Hurricane Katrina. As a class, they watch a demonstration on how a wetland can reduce the impact of a hurricane. In groups, they perform their own experiment and compare and contrast the amount of meshed materials and hypothesis about how land can be protected by wetlands.

Lesson Planet has been a lifesaver in assisting me with planning great lessons for my students. It has helped me to see what other teachers are using to engage their students in learning.
