Several years ago, a hurricane passed through my state. While We received quite a lot of damage, other places in the country were much more severely impacted.
As my students returned to school, I realized that they had been exposed to quite a bit of media, including images and stories of destruction and death in the wake of the storm. Many of them were frightened and upset.
So I decided to help process through some of those feelings with some discussion drawing and writing activities. Some of them are included here in this pack. If children in your class have experienced a storm, or even if they have simply seen far too much news coverage, I hope these activities can help your students.
