The Power of Fire
The focus is on environment and society, including how forces of nature can be destructive, but can be planned for. In this Xpeditions Activity, students are challenged to become a hazard mapper and create their own maps. They are offered a chance to assess what they did by comparing their maps with those used by others. It is a map intensive site with many links to sites that feature plate tectonics, flood plains, the Ring of Fire, forest fires, earthquakes, and volcanoes.
