Natural Disaster Risk in NYC Unit Plan

As human populations grow and continue to migrate across the Earth, it is important that we use our understanding of why and how natural disasters take place to identify which populations are most at risk, so that measures can be taken to minimize loss of life and property. In this unit students will revisit tectonic plate boundaries when they observe and analyze earthquake activity data associated with a range of fault lines across the globe. Students will then evaluate the risk of various natural disasters in New York City and learn about effective emergency preparedness.
