Did you remember this is EARTH SCIENCE WEEK?
This year's theme is Climate. Here's a nice Climate Activity if you need something to pay homage to Earth Science week but can't spend too much time on it because of curriculum demands.
Dangerous Atmosphere: "How much of a danger does severe weather pose for the area where you live?"
Would work quite well if you have a big screen projection system. Do the research together with each student recording the information in a chart.
Then do a quick discussion, ending with safety tips for each type of danger in your area.
Have each student make a button with a safety tip and wear it this week. Or they could make an Earth Science Week button!
