Disaster Education for Elementary Students
The State Department of Education is distributing a guide to preparing for and responding to disasters created by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP).
A “Teacher’s Guide to Online Resources” is a PDF which summarizes four websites that educate elementary children on preparing for and responding to disasters. The website programs are complete with curriculum, instructions, and activities on emergency plans, disaster supplies, evacuation, animals, and shelters. They all aim at creating a safer environment at school and home.
