Informational Articles on Hurricanes

This was my first hyperdocs/playlist lesson created to introduce my 6th graders to our "Washed Away" Unit.  Although we would be reading realistic fiction books based around Hurricane Katrina, I wanted students to still continue to be exposed to non-fiction texts.  So prior to beginning the books, I had students work through this lesson in order to get a better idea of the impact that hurricanes can have on a family, community, city, etc. on so many levels.
