I’ve written a current events lesson based on the fires that are currently wreaking havoc across California. I’m hoping that through this lesson, students gain more awareness of natural disasters in the US and around the world, and figure out how they can help people in need.
This is definitely a lesson for more advanced students – the article is from the New York Times and has not been edited at all. The reading is long (about three pages), and features some advanced, academic vocabulary.
Remember, if you liked this lesson plan and have used it in class, please consider a small donation on Ko-fi so I can continue creating free content!
