Students will explore and identify roles of the health care workers regarding man-made or natural disasters, active threats, and health emergencies in their area.
Natural and man-made disasters happen randomly. Being prepared is key to ensuring individual safety and survival. In this lesson, students will be given an emergency, disaster or threat and work in teams to brainstorm potential medical issues and corresponding resources or equipment needed to deal with those issues. They will produce posters and share their conclusions, identifying any resources or equipment in common.
