Discover the power of the weather in this full-color introduction to natural disasters for kids ages 7 to 10 that explores the science behind earthquakes, volcanoes, storms, wildfires, and tornadoes with STEM projects and real-world connections

Have you ever felt the ground beneath your feet move in an earthquake? Have you ever had to ride out a blizzard at home? Natural Disasters With 25 Science Projects for Kids guides kids ages 7 to 10 through a scientific introduction to the forces behind extreme meteorological events. Earthquakes, volcanoes, storms, wildfires, and more affect people around the world and appear in the news almost daily. Plus, climate change adds more fuel to storms, affects water supply, and makes conditions ripe for wildfires and rising water levels. Learn the science behind why

- Through interactive STEM and STEAM projects that simulate natural disasters and the science behind them, such as modeling plate tectonics, diagramming atmospheric conditions, and science journaling, students learn about the mechanics of these disasters, how to prepare for them, and how to be of service to others experiencing them.

- A focus on conservation will empower students to do their part to help curb climate change and mitigate the effects of natural disasters.

- Readers learn about different kinds of extreme weather including Hurricane Katrina, flooding in Texas, California wildfires, and the tornadoes that struck southern United States in 2011.
