Disaster Aware and Prepare Curriculum for Primary School

I have added this as a blog as well as being accessible from  he menu bar as I am able to see page views and therefore see if the resources are being used! If you plan to use or have used any of the resources, do please comment below the resources! The resources have been designed to be used in a setting where sheets might be printed out and photocopied for classroom use. They would make a great resource for embedding disaster safety into the national curriculum in your own country. They are only currently available in English, but I hope they can be used as a stimulus material as well as for teacher training.This is a work in progress and more resources will be added over time!These resources have been developed with flexibility in mind in terms of how they are delivered.

Introducing Extreme Event Game

Extreme Event game is just the ticket to give your group a taste of what it takes to build community resilience in the face of disaster. Players work together to make decisions and solve problems during an engaging, fast-paced disaster simulation. You just need 1 hour, 12-48 players (age 14+), and some game materials that you download online totally FREE. There are three disaster scenarios available and it’s a great activity for teambuilding, ice-breaking, and learning something in the process!See Extreme-Event.org for details and downloads. See More
