Check out our latest resource guide for elementary and secondary teachers, on the Global Classroom Web site, (When Disaster Strikes: Horn of Africa Supplementary Guide). We know that it can be challenging to convey the issues and complexities associated with humanitarian emergencies to your students, so UNICEF Canada creates supplementary resources to address specific emergencies, such as this most recent one, in which  a worsening drought, rising food prices, and on-going conflict in Somalia have created a severe humanitarian crisis.

Activity:  Read Stories of Survival from the Horn of Africa here on the UNICEF – Canada BLOG  with your class.

Create a bulletin board or poster board profiling the stories of survivors. Include photographs, quotes and life summaries that focus on the strength and determination of the people affected by this humanitarian disaster, as well as a call to action on their behalf.
