EbD-TEEMS™: Grade 3: NxtGen (P255E)
Natural Hazards engages young learners in hands-on inquiry and design as they explore natural hazards that occur on the Earth. This Third Grade Building Block in the EbD - TEEMS Integrative-STEM Curricula for PreK–6 integrates concepts of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics through the environmental context of natural hazards. Science and mathematics concepts that are reinforced include multiple hands-on inquiry-based activities such as creating designs, exploring regions of the Earth, and analyzing weather data as students learn about weather and climate as well as the natural hazards that occur around the world. The final design challenge provides an opportunity for students to apply knowledge and skills in a meaningful way as they develop a design for a way to help people travel during a blizzard.
