Teaching about the Tsunami

Here's a lesson for lower school students you can use if you want to teach about the tsunami. Some teachers may be struggling with the aftermaths...

Tsunami Links:
1) Visit the following PBS link (view tsunami animation and woman survivor interview)
2) In your science notebooks:
a) How fast do tsunamis travel? Why do they slow down as they approach the shore?
b) What can trigger a tsunami?
c) Draw a picture of what a tsunami looks like out on the open ocean. (here is where students can take their imagination of the disaster and illustrate it) Encourage them to draw for this exercise.
d) What are ways to stay safe if a tsunami were to occur here?
e) Name some ways you could help raise money for the tsunami victims

lastly, remember the children.
