National Science Teachers Association. . . what sets this book apart is that it contains projects which take this volume to a whole new level." School Library Journal "Spiraling winds, surging waters, eruptions, blazing forests, and chilling snows are discussed with clarity and detail and include the most recent information, e.g., the MMS Scale and the Enhanced Fujita Scale. Hence, readers may accurately grasp the impact of nature's destructive forces. In addition to a lucid explanation of each type of phenomenon, safety tips, historical incidences, pen-and-ink line drawings, and correlative projects using simple materials are included to provide firsthand evidence of scientific processes involved in natural forces. Useful for science units"Ray Coish Ph.D., Robert R. Churchill Professor of Geosciences, Middlebury College" Natural Disasters covers important topics in imaginative ways. The chapters on earthquakes and volcanoes present the basics of how the earth works, and the well-designed activities at the end of each chapter-using easily attainable supplies-illustrate the important processes."Marla Conn, Educational Consultant' Natural Disasters meets the criteria for the Common Core State Standard in reading for informational text.
