Y11 Haiti Quake



The Haiti Earthquake took place almost 5 years ago but the country is still reeling from its effects.  The country is on a conservative margin and is prone to quakes but this one was huge!!Fault lines in the Caribbean

This is the powerpoint we used in lesson. Haiti Quake January 12th 2010 (3).  It introduces the causes and explains the long and short term effects for the country.

For the case study questions you will need to be able to remember specific facts (like the numbers we collected in lesson) but you’ll also need to be able to describe the effects of the earthquake on the Haitians and the simulator on the first page of the powerpoint will help you to do that.


Pick which character you want to be (journalist, aid worker or survivor) and then work through their experience.  Make sure you get a photo of you working through it or a signature in your diary from apparent saying that you have done this.
