I wanted to bring the Haiti earthquake to life in the classroom. Learning about it through textbooks or the news was a little dry, so I did some research on the news and packaged some together to form a resource. I use this for some role play activities, where the pupils act out the picture & caption they have been given, building empathy with those caught up in the earthquake. I then use the touching Hector Mendez story as a "teacher in role"
activity, which can get a bit emotional. Please feel free to download and share this activity.
