Awesome Forces teacher resource 

This resource is designed to support teachers in developing a unit of work about some of New Zealand’s natural hazards and how to prepare for them. It looks at earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and tsunami - where they can occur and have occurred.

Part of this resource is specifically aimed at students (years 4-10, aged about 8-14). It is highly interactive and includes a game, Get Ready for the Big One, that teaches what hazards occur in which regions in this country and what to consider when preparing for and facing them.
