Building Dikes and Levees
Dikes and levees are created to help protect communities from rising floodwaters and hurricanes. With the rising temperatures of our planet, our sea and water side communities continue to be in harms way. Levees and dikes are traditionally made of earth. These engineering marvels keep our communities safe. Lead your readers through this book to learn and discuss these geological ideas at work. This nonfiction book is paired with the fiction book, Jeff’s Trip to Holland, for connecting across texts and comprehension through connection strategies.
