My colleague, Arlene Weible, forwarded a link to a blog posting about disaster preparedness materials for children and teens.

The blog points out how to buy or borrow the resources, but many are available online for free. For example, FEMA has a website about emergency preparedness for kids that has activities with Flat Stanley and Flat Stella, has a matching game to help families remember what to pack in an emergency, etc. In the section for parents and teachers, you'll find a Ready Kids Activity Book and more.

FEMA also has a publication that describes and links to other disaster preparedness education resources. Be prepared for A LOT of information. (Pun intended. Groan.)

Remember that most U.S. government information and publications are in the public domain so can be used and copied with no worries about copyright infringement.


P.S. For those who live, work, or travel near Portland, you might be interested to know about the Allen Say exhibit at the Multnomah County Library.
