Description

Overview:
In this lesson students will make the connections between poverty and high death tolls in earthquakes. Students will understand that the effects of natural disasters are worse in impoverished places than in wealthy places. Students will compare and contrast the effects of an earthquake that hit Haiti to an earthquake that occurred in San Francisco. Students will examine graphs to obtain information in order to make the connections between poverty and high death tolls. Students will complete this activity by creating a diagram/poster/collage that demonstrates things that make the United States safer from earthquakes than in countries who are not as wealthy. This lesson was developed by Christina Hartzell as part of their completion of the North Carolina Global Educator Digital Badge program. This lesson plan has been vetted at the local and state level for standards alignment, Global Education focus, and content accuracy.
