Safety Brochures

Since we have spent the last month reading about natural disasters I thought we should focus on safety preparation. I really wanted students to feel empowered and in control of their own safety. I got safety articles from FEMA and The Red Cross. Students researched all week, including looking at the school-wide emergency kit! Each student had to make a safety brochure as a form of expository text. Inside flaps had facts about their natural disaster, what to do before, during, and after to stay safe, and lastly real numbers to call if in a natural disaster. The students learned a lot about ways to stay safe at school, home, and in the community! I am really impressed of the work they put into their brochures!
Some of the students brochures
Facts about Tsunami
This student wrote about what to do before, during, and after a hurricane to stay safe
Some#s we included are 911, Red Cross, Text Shelter + Zip to FEMA. Did you also know your family should have a contact in another state that you all call in a disaster because it is easy to call to another state.
