Help the youth in your community become more prepared!
The American Red Cross Masters of Disaster® curriculum is centered on a series of ready-to-go lesson plans that help organizations educate youth about important disaster safety and preparedness information. The curriculum uses fun and engaging lessons to educate children. This tool provides educators with meaningful hands-on, interactive ways to help children understand important concepts on preventing, preparing for, and responding to both natural and human-caused disasters.
Easy to Integrate!
Activities are independent—you decide which are most important for your students. The curriculum flexibility allows you to choose what will complement the lessons you are already teaching. Lessons meet national educational standards—to reinforce student academics while building life skills—and are specifically tailored for lower elementary (K–2), upper elementary (3–5), and middle school (6–8) classes. The kit includes a CD with all lessons and activity sheets, stickers, a poster and a DVD in English and Spanish about safety for disasters.
