Helping children understand disasters and how they can make a difference
Disasters can be frightening – for children and adults alike. But learning more about disasters, how to prepare for them and respond to them are critical skills for children, who are growing up in an era where disasters are becoming more frequent and more severe.
Preparing for the world to come
With potentially increasing disasters on the horizon this summer including bushfires, drought, floods and cyclones, Save the Children have produced a video to support young children to understand more about disasters.
The video can help teach pre and early primary school age children about how natural hazards can turn into disasters, what might occur in a disaster or emergency, and how they can make a difference.
