Fifth grade students at Allapattah Flats K8 School are working diligently on their natural disaster research project and brochure. Students are now accomplished scientists who can observe and experiment to gather data and draw conclusions. They have expanded their knowledge of the physical world and can apply the basic math and science skills they’ve acquired to their observations. The understanding of the scientific method and the natural world has allowed them to research and analyze each natural disaster so they are able to complete an informational brochure to present to the class. Each group of students is required to research factual information on their specific disaster and put together an informational brochure that explains different aspects of their disaster.
