Resource of the Week 12th-18th December

I have talked about this resource before, but as it is the holiday season for so many and songs are sung at this time I thought that this would make a good addition. As we know earthquakes can occur at any time - including in the holiday season - both Bam earthquake in Iran  on 26th December 2003 and Indian Ocean Earthquake and tsunami on 26th December 2004, so it is just as important to be prepared at all times! This song is for younger children (kindergarten), but I have sung this with my class of 14 year olds and they enjoy it as well, because I explain the importance of preparedness for younger children and many have young brothers and sisters! 



For those of you who are unaware of the tune or have not heard 'Old McDonald had a Farm' you can listen and down load the mp3 free here....I would also be interested to know about other locally used songs that help children prepare for a natural hazard!
