This week we talked about natural disasters, from tsnunamis to floods to earthquakes. We discussed what to do when faced with one and what are some of the factors that play into the destruction. Now on to your homework!
Listening: So there are several things you could do to practice some listening this week. First, check out an ESLVideo for learners about Natural Disasters or an adapted listening exercise called 72 Hour Emergency Kit.
Writing: This week for writing, try one of the following prompts:
Natural disasters occur every day all over the world (hurricanes, tornadoes, tsunamis, blizzards, floods, mudslides, etc). Which one do you think is the most destructive and why? What are some ways people can help prepare themselves in the event of this devastating natural disaster? Be sure to include details about the most devastating example of this disaster.
Or, for some more creative writing, how about this:
A natural disaster sweeps through a town. Describe the events following.
