Natural Disasters Unit Schedule and Lesson Plan

The children kept asking for a Natural Disasters Unit, but we'd already talked about several of these things (volcanoes in our volcano unit, floods and clouds and lightning and convection currents in our water unit, earthquakes and tsunamis in our rocks unit, etc) so I planned this unit to be a little less in-depth than it otherwise might have been. It's always fun to review things like volcanoes, though!

We also learned about several new things, one of the most interesting (to me) being ice storms and frozen rain---I've never understood why, if it's cold out, the "frozen rain" isn't just snow! Now I get it. We also made a barometer, which we've never done before and which we've found very fun to watch the past few weeks.
