ShelterBox Lesson Plan

The lesson plan below deals with disasters in general and the feelings and needs of victims of disasters. It then leads into a discussion/explanation of the work of ShelterBox.

The lesson is adaptable to all levels and is in two stages that can either follow on immediately or be taught separately. There are also some stand-alone reading lessons and suggestions for supplementary activities.

Other than paper and pens, the materials needed are listed under each stage.

STAGE ONE – Consists of five steps including: warmer to introduce topic of earthquakes, discussion on feelings and what you need to survive, vocabulary for other types of disaster.
