Title: The Sinking State of Alabama
Description: The lesson will begin by engaging students with a video of a natural landform in Alabama called Neversink Pit. Students will then research the natural and human-made causes and effects of sinkhole formation in Alabama. Lastly, students will create a video PSA to communicate information about sinkhole dangers and methods to protect people and property from sinkhole damage. This lesson results from a collaboration between the Alabama State Department of Education and ASTA.
