Product Description
**Now updated for 2016**

This lesson looks at the Haiti earthquake as a case study of a natural disaster in a less developed country.

It is based around the Channel 4 Documentary 'Haiti's Killer Quake - Why it happened' with geologist Roger Bilham. However, it could also be used alongside any documentary that gives the basic facts of the disaster.

This resource consists of a PowerPoint, which gives a structure to the lesson and suggested activities, and provides students with a detailed double sided A3 fact file to colour, write on and sketch information about the Haitian earthquake of January 2010. This is a great resource for visual learners.

My students filled in the fact file by watching the documentary and using their own research. Alternatively students could fill in the fact fact using only their own research.

Students could fill in the whole fact file individually, or they could each fill in a part and then share their information. Or they could work in groups.

The file is editable so you can tailor it to suit your syllabus/students.

Please check out my lesson on Japan for a contrasting case study of an earthquake in a more developed country.
