We are delighted to be able to present these lesson plans with the kind permission of Oxfam.
“Why do disasters happen? Can they be prevented? What can be done to help?”
Although the lessons are originally designed for English school children aged 11-14, the resources can easily be adapted to suit learners of English as a Second or Foreign Language.
These two lesson plans are part of a larger group of resources, including a further 5 lesson plans, background information on disasters and natural hazards, and materials for delivering assemblies, which could be used for practising speaking to groups.
The additional resources can be found on this page of the Oxfam website: http://www.oxfam.org.uk/education/resources/dealing_disasters/?58
