Description:

In this design-based lesson, learners study flood dynamics as they modify a riverbed with blockages or levees to simulate real-world scenarios. Learners will learn about floodplains, consider different manmade and natural factors that contribute to flooding, and explore different structures that can be used to mitigate flood damage.
