Unnatural Disasters: Human Error, Design Flaws, and Bad Decisions

Set of 6 titles

Human modification of the environment always carries a risk of accident and folly. With this series, young readers explore the causes and consequences of some of the most major environmental catastrophes of the past 100 years. Guided by compelling questions such as, "What led to these disasters?," "Who was impacted by them?," and "What changed in their aftermath?" this interdisciplinary series blends social studies and science content. Ultimately, it pushes students to consider how humans can meet their need for resources in a safe, sustainable way. Books include table of contents, index, glossary, author biography, and timeline.
