Solutions to Natural Disasters Sort for Table Groups
There are two ways to do this sort. One way is in table groups where students collaboratively look at the images on the cards, read the brief descriptions, and determine which whether each is long or short-term solution to natural disaster situations.
There are short and long-term solutions to natural disasters that students with read about in this sort. Based on what students see and read, they will decide if each solution helps in the short or long-term.
This sort has colorful images that students analyze, as well as informative texts for students to read over.
Cut and Paste Sort Option
The second way to do the sort is a cut and paste option. Students can do both options: sort color option as a whole group and the cut and paste option individually. Or you can choose to have students do only one option.
The cut and paste option is all in black and white and a worksheet format. After reading the informational passage, students look at the images and then sort them into the correct type of solution to natural disasters: short or long-term.
Like all of our science stations, differentiated responses are available for students to demonstrate their understanding. Below is an example of the Short Answer worksheet. Fill-in-the-blanks and multiple-choice task cards are also available.
