Natural Disasters: Global Connection

About this Skype lesson

I am a computer teacher for a K-8 Catholic School in Brick, New Jersey - United States. I currently advise a technology club.

In late October 2012, our state experienced Hurricane Sandy, a powerful tropical storm. Many of our students lost their homes, personal keepsakes, and missed school for a short period of time. Local attractions and our shore were destroyed. We are all still in the process of re-building.

Students at our school are very eager to share their experiences and learn about places around the world that have experienced similar or more devastating disasters. For most of our community this experience could be once in a lifetime.

We would be interested to learn about how your communities prepare for disaster and what efforts and resources are utilized in your area.
