I'm sure Haiti is on your mind lately, too, as well as on the minds of your students, whether you are educating in a homeschool or a school, in Haiti or America or, well, anywhere. We're all thinking about Haiti this week! This is a good time to educate our students about Haiti:
This site, by PBS, was created especially for teachers and students. It contains news articles, video clips, earthquake history, and more. If you go to only one site on this list, I think this one would be the most helpful.
Lesson plans, links to photos and more from the New York Times
The lesson plan on this site, written following this week's
earthquake, has some good, easy-to-implement ideas in it.
This site, created for children by the US Geological Society, contains games, history, today's quakes, facts, pictures, and an Ask a Geologist section
Pre-Earthquake Lesson Plans on Haiti
for middle to high school students, from NewsHour with Jim Lehrer on PBS
a book of historical, cultural, political, and social facts about
Haiti. Would be a good supplement to your high school or middle school
students' studies on Haiti.
