Red Cross Resources for Teaching about the Haiti Earthquake

Red CrossThank you to Karen Grant O’Grady who sent me this resource.

To meet a demand from Canadian teachers, the Canadian Red Cross developed a new school prevention program that complements Expect the Unexpected™. The Facing Fear™ program is designed to help young people aged 5 to 16 deal with the aftermath of a terrorist attack or a tragic event by addressing the following topics:

  • feelings management;
  • the media’s role and impact on the development of perceptions;
  • international humanitarian law.

  • Module 1, for students aged 5-7, (PDF, 471kb);
  • Module 2, for students aged 8-10, (PDF, 312kb);
  • Module 3, for students aged 11-13, (PDF, 783kb);
  • Module 4, for students aged 14-16, (PDF, 469kb).

  1. I think it’s great to involve kids in current world issues. Children, even very young children, should have these things explained to them. Better in the classroom than in the school yard!
