The British Red Cross explains more about their new free resource, Natural disasters: earthquakes...
Every year the Red Cross helps people who have been affected by natural disasters around the world. In conversations with geography teachers, we’ve found that when teaching their students about natural disasters, they are keen to use resources that incorporate a humanitarian perspective alongside the geographical learning.
This paved the way for the development of our new curriculum-led geography teaching resource, Natural disasters: earthquakes.
Drawing on the recent experience of the Red Cross during the 2015 Nepal earthquake, theresource supports geography teachers in embedding real scenarios and case studies within their lessons. The resource provides a unique perspective on how individuals and communities prepare for, respond to and recover from these life-changing events.
• The physical geography, hazards and risks which can cause a natural disaster such as an earthquake
• How to analyse and explain the various types of impact an earthquake can have on individuals and communities
• Insight into the Red Cross’ role in disaster preparedness, response and recovery.
• About the concept of resilience, and what might make a community able to cope in a crisis
Supported by the Geographical Association, the resource starts with activities for all students, before differentiating into activities for KS3, GCSE and A level. A mapping document shows how the resource can be used to support the curricula taught in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
“We urge all geography teachers to download this free resource and encourage young people to think about the humanitarian impact of natural disasters.
This invaluable resource pack has been created with the technical input from the British Red Cross, combined with the expertise of GA teacher consultants.”
– Rebecca Kitchen, Secondary Curriculum Leader at the Geographical Association
