New Lesson Plan: Weathering Texas

Through the analysis of primary-source archival footage from TAMI’s interactive web exhibit, “Weathering Texas,” students will demonstrate an understanding of extreme weather events in Texas during the 20th and 21st centuries.

Teachers will take students in grades 3 - 8 on a “guided tour” of “Weathering Texas,” where students will explore the historical context of certain events and the conditions that made them serious disasters; the geographical and climatological underpinnings of such occurrences; the response taken by state, local, and federal officials; and the experiences of those who survived these storms. Students will complete analysis worksheets on their own or collectively, with teacher guidance, requiring them to apply critical-thinking skills to organize information. 

Join us for a fun exploration of the "Weathering Texas" web exhibit!
