Overview: Research a cataclysmic event.
Estimate Time: 30 minutes
Explanation: In our Earth Changing Surface unit students learned about cataclysmic events. Please create a passion project on a cataclysmic event.
*We ask that you stay away from volcanoes since we have covered this topic with our informative writing in class.
Things to know:
Cataclysmic event – an event that causes a sudden and dramatic change to the earth’s surface.
Possible Passion Project Ideas: Power Point, create a poster, create a video, make a book, create a visual with clay/model magic etc., build a project out of Lego. Use what you have available at home and be CREATIVE!
Tasks for Today:
*All activities can be completed in your composition book or electronically (Word, Seesaw, PowerPoint, etc.)
- Brainstorm: Think back to our unit on Earth Changing Surface and generate a list of cataclysmic events and add them to your composition notebook*.
- Pre-search topics: Using the researching hierarchy, choose one of your topics to read about. If your topic doesn’t hold your interest choose a different topic on your list.
- Plan your final project: Think about how you’d possibly like to present your information.
