Fourth Grade GT

Surviving a Natural Disaster Presentation

DEAR PARENTS AND TEACHERS

I will be out for the next two weeks having surgery. During this time, the students are doing independent projects on Google Classroom. I will be monitoring them from home and giving them feedback on their presentations. They will be working on these projects during their regular scheduled GT time in the classroom. The diorama will have to be done at home. If you have any questions, please feel free to text or email me.

PRESENTATION INSTRUCTIONS

Pick one of the following natural disasters: (Only one person can do each disaster)

an avalanche - Sam
a flood. - Makhila
a tornado. - Graham
a tsunami. - Estrella
a hurricane. - Blake
a forest fire. - Kylee
an earthquake.- Zachary
a volcanic eruption.- Charlotte
a mountain climbing accident.- Mason

being capsized in a boat or ship due to weather. - Ben

Make a slide show about how to survive the natural disaster. You must include all of the following: (No necessarily in this order)

title
basic information
tips
tools
clothing
equipment
food
frequently asked questions (FAQ)
dangers or challenges
map
handy phrases -- if in a foreign country
unusual terms -- relevant to the topic
other helpful resources related to the type of disaster
common geographic features related to the topic (rock formations, etc.)
customs or traditions that might aid understanding

Your last slide must include a list of all resources you used. (Copy and paste them as you go)

Students are also required to build a diorama of their natural disaster. They need to use a shoe box or other small box to make this. They are to be creative and can make it anyway they want as long as they depict their natural disaster.
