Protecting Homes From Severe Weather (25-30 minutes) > Print/View All Notes
In this activity, students watch a slideshow that shows how different types of severe weather can impact homes and what people can do to weatherproof. Before students begin, have them turn to page 12 of their Engineering Portfolios and encourage them to take notes on the slideshow. You may need to scaffold the note-taking process. They will need to refer to their notes later. Remember to be extra sensitive towards those students who may have experienced a loss due to severe weather.
