Published on

This was designed for my Year 7 class and for the Haiti story pupils had their eyes closed and listen, they then completed slide 5, shared their ideas and thought about what would happen next. A short youtube clip is needed for slide 9, if you search CBS a week in Haiti it comes up. Images are from google searches and other online presentations.
