Global Citizenship Brief Philippines: Lesson Plan (Grades 3-5)


Through discussion, reading, and video, students will discover that climate change has a significant impact on real people's lives, especially those of children.  Students will read about and discuss an extreme weather event partially resulting from climate change—2013's Super Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines and examine strategies of planning ahead for future disasters and "building back better" after a disaster to increase resiliency.  Finally, students will consider disaster risk in their own community and create their own plans for addressing these risks using their school as an example.
