This project will be devoted to helping 5th Grade Geography students at MICDS understand how geography shapes their own lives as well as the lives of people around the world through the study of severe weather and natural disasters.
Our general focus will be to investigate how people everywhere adjust their lives due to the the influence of natural events in their geographic region. Specifically we are going to look into how people prepare for the wide range of natural threats that they might be faced with year in and year out.

Do you have questions, or are you interested in participating with us in next year's project? Please get in contact with me:
