Activity Overview

There are so many types of natural disasters that it can be difficult for students to focus on every single one of them. In this activity, students will create a spider map that identifies and illustrates at least six natural disasters. This activity can easily be adjusted to fit the needs of your students and how many disasters you would like them to focus on.
