What Kids Need To Know
Children are affected by natural disasters as much as, if not more than, adults. It is important for children to know that they can contribute to their family's preparedness activities. Giving children information about disasters and teaching them how to prepare for and remain safe during the events allows them this opportunity. The more mentally prepared they are before a disaster, the better they will be in handling the situation should an emergency arise.
Use these activities to help prepare students, and be sure to review the appropriate action plan.
