PEI SOLS 3rd Grade Fire: Wildfires in Washington

PEI SOLS 3rd Grade Fire: Wildfires in Washington

Overview

A change in climate over time has contributed to a significant increase of wildfires in our state. In this storyline, students will make the connection between changes in ecosystems and the interconnectedness of all things. Students will gain an understanding of combustion (fire triangle), and observe through data that certain conditions (humidity, temperature, fuel load, etc.) contribute to forest fires (fire environment triangle).
