Investigation 4: How do disaster paths affect people's lives?

Extensions and Enrichment

Four scenarios illustrate paths produced by natural disasters. Students learn that natural disasters can be observed and analyzed using remotely sensed images. Working in groups, students read letters from imaginary pen pals describing specific natural disasters, examine NASA images of the locations of these events, report on the events, and write a response to the pen pals.
