A Powerful Force of Nature

How are we affected by water? and How do we explain it?

Goal: Create a timeline using myths and actual events displaying the sheer power of water

What will this look like? The timeline consists of newspaper articles written by the students about myths and actual historical events.

Myths: Students looked at myths about water from different cultures. The Four Dragons is a myth from China about the creation of the 4 major rivers, including the Yangze River or Long River. Water monsterse such as the Loch Ness monster and Ogo Pogo were also investigated.

Actual Events: Students researched and investigated famous floods and disaster events caused by water. These included the Tsunami, the Red River Flood and the flood in June 2005 in Calgary
