Simple Schooling The Science of Floods introduces Middle Graders to the how and why of water.  We begin this unit by looking at the different states of matter, and how water can change between them.  We then move on to explore the water cycle, causes of flooding such as hurricanes, tsunamis, and ice melt, and wrap up the unit with damages and benefits of flooding as well as flood safety.  Students have 6 vocabulary exercises and three online games to help them test their comprehension of the subject.
