Lesson Plan

Evacuate!

After a hurricane touches down on an area, locals begin the clean-up process. The Cynergy Plant requires cleaning, a blood drive is underway, temporary homes are needed for those that evacuated, and toiletries are rationed. Five lessons solve the problems presented by the natural disaster using units of measurement and proportions.
