Thanks to Jessica Merritt for this fascinating guide In part 2 – surviving Earthquakes, Floods and Volcanoes. Protect Your Home and Family from an Earthquake More than three million earthquakes both small and large happen each year. On average, that’s an earthquake every 11 seconds. Though most are too weak to notice or take place in uninhabited areas, earthquakes in populated areas can be dangerous and destructive, causing property damage and injuries, even death.
Children in school today spend less time outdoors than ever before, and face increasing rates of obesity, asthma and allergies, ADHD, and other mental and behavioral health problems. At the same time, our civilization is facing catastrophic climate change, which we as a society are totally unequipped to deal with. So how can we improve our children’s health and well-being while also teaching them environmental literacy so that they are able to respond to looming ecological problems? How can classrooms be made less toxic and more environmentally friendly?
