Texts to Explore the Impact of Hurricanes
In response to current events, we’d like to resurface two previous entries that will support conversations in your classroom about the impact of hurricanes.
Our entry on Over in the Wetlands: A Hurricane-On-the-Bayou Story can be used with elementary through middle grade students.
Our entry on the Orbis-Pictus Award winning title Drowned City is best suited for students in grades 7 and up.
