Emergency Science – Surviving Natural Disasters - The science behind earthquakes, vocanoes and tsunamis

ISBN: 9781776555444
Code: 51083


Emergency Science – Surviving Natural Disasters Cover
The book connects science directly with natural disasters and demonstrates clearly how understanding emergency science concepts can literally save lives – quite possibly those of the students and their families – during an earthquake, volcanic eruption or tsunami. The wide range of hands-on activities covers Earth’s layers, continental drift, tectonic plates, plate boundary divergence and convergence, heat transfer, real disasters, tides and moon phases, fossils and the rock cycle. Students are actively engaged as they explore scientific models based on observation and tested by evidence, and complete class-based resources.
