Activity Overview


In this activity, students will compare what they have read in "Kenya’s Long Dry Season" with the article, "Drought seen getting worse in Washington state this summer" (or similar) in a T-Chart. The T-Chart could have two columns, as in a traditional T-Chart and the example below, or use three columns for a Venn Diagram. These texts both discuss drought and the effects it can have on the environment and community, but for very different locations.


"Kenya’s Long Dry Season"

  • For the past three seasons, the rains have failed to come to Kenya.
  • Kenya's grasslands are dried out and cattle are dying.
  • The United Nations World Food Program (WFP) needs $230 million in donations.

"Drought seen getting worse in Washington state this summer"

  • Washington state is experiencing a drought. Farmers are being paid not to water their crops until the end of the summer.
  • Salmon may be stranded in shallow water or could be harmed by the warm temperatures.
  • The Department of Ecology is waiting for $18 million dollars to get water to help farmers.
