Forces of Nature
Fasten your seatbelts; we’re in for some wild weather! This unit is all about the
amazing and powerful forces of nature, as students explore the when, where,
how and why of all kinds of natural phenomenon. There is a lot of geography
in this unit -- we’ll examine a map of the Pacific “Ring of Fire” where most
tsunamis occur, view a diagram of the tectonic plates and learn how their
movement creates earthquakes, define the area known as “Tornado Alley” in
North America, and find out what hurricanes are called in different parts of the
world. These lessons are designed to improve your child’s understanding of
the forces of nature, while taking care not to alarm. Each model represents the
motion of that particular weather or event, with a seat for a mini-figure to take
in the action! Kids will love to build moving models of a tornado, a tsunami, an
earthquake and a cyclone. Learn how they move, why they happen and what
you can do to stay safe!
