In this inquiry, students will understand and learn more about the devastating effects of a Tsunami. What causes tidal waves with such force? They will also learn how plants and soils help to stabilize the earth around structures to prevent erosion that such natural disasters cause. They will learn about the basic concepts of forces that cause movement, growth and changes in plants, soils in the environment and how strong and stable rely on these elements of our natural world to uphold their properties. We will use the design process to test and see what design work best under different conditions and we will see the importance of this design thinking problem and how it can affect people’s everyday lives.
