Forces of Nature - Natural Hazards
Today you will be given 30 minutes to look at all other student presentations. You can click on any student document link to view and learn about the natural hazard and a natural disaster that occurred from this hazard...as well as how humans have adapted to living where this hazard is frequent--and whether humans have increased or decreased their risk of being harmed by their activities and where they have chosen to live.
Task #1: Look at student Presentations and take notes on the handout. These are notes for you to keep and study by. You do NOT have to turn this in. But you are expected to complete it. There will be a couple of questions on the summative test about natural hazards.
What makes a good map?
You will rotate through stations and look at different types of maps at each station. You will evaluate the maps and determine which of the set is considered a "good" map and look at what features make it a good quality map. You will also determine which of the maps is not a good quality map and why it is not good. You will provide details of what could be done to improve the map. You will also answer 1 question related to that type of map to practice interpreting data from a variety of maps. You will complete your work using the Google Doc link below:
TASK #2: Look at the maps at each station and complete the following form.
