ECUADOR EARTHQUAKE 2016 - editable powerpoint. Easily edited to include information of other earthquakes.
Critical Thinking is a definitive and important skill, often integral in the study of Geography and other humanities.
In this example, the ideas that come from thinking through a catastrophic earthquake event can lead to a reduction in the risk of damage after a natural disaster.
The aim of this learning resource is to allow students the opportunity to think about the effects of a natural disaster beyond it’s initial damage and coverage on news bulletins.
Students are presented with actual information from the 2016 Ecuadorian earthquake for a five day period.
For each activity (it is recommend that this is given as morning activity or homework over a 5-day period) the students should be encouraged to critically think about the human geography content and ‘free write’ a diary or journal installment based on the experiences of a similar-aged earthquake survivor.
OUTCOMES: Students should be able to demonstrate an understanding of the information provided and emphasise with the situation by describing an increasing intensity of emotions and experiences over their five installments.
