Two resources released this year help teach students about getting ready for an earthquake.

The Earthquake Preparedness Unit was developed by LISTN for adult ESL students at Canadian Language Benchmark Levels 4 and 5.

The Unit consists of four core lessons, each 1.5 hours long:
• Introduction: Preparing for an Earthquake
• Workshop: An Emergency Preparedness Kit
• Giving and Receiving Directions for a Home Emergency Plan
• PBLA: Speaking and Listening.

Four follow-up activities and additional classroom ideas are included. Click here to see the Earthquake Preparedness Unit.

If your students are reading at a beginning or intermediate level, the Earthquake Safety booklet in the mini-Breakthrough series created by the I-CARE Adult Literacy Program contains one reading for each level along with coordinating exercises. To borrow this resource, contact
