Simple Schooling Avalanche! is an in depth look at how avalanches occur, the three major types of avalanches, how they impact the environment, how they move down the mountain and how to be safe when in the backcountry.  Students will complete 4 interactive vocabulary lessons, a compare and contrast lesson, an interactive wordsearch puzzle, a sequencing events activity, and a fun final test!  Suitable for grades 6 and up, this unit study continues with the study of physical science and natural disasters in previous units.
