  • Take several sets of legos or even better, just blocks and ask some volunteers to build some homes- can demo type of earthquakes later or do some now- take cardboard to put under each building
  • Need to set up Google Earth Tour in advance (can I save mine and open it there?) About 67 Haitians to make what one Jacksonville person makes (Based on $600 to $40,000)
  • Have kids make fault lines with their hands to model each and talk about what happens when each moves http://en.mercopress.com/2010/01/15/haiti-sits-on-two-seismic-fault-lines-and-a-major-disaster-was-expected The problem in geological terms is that the Haitian half of the island of Hispaniola sits sandwiched between two fault lines on the divide between the North American tectonic plate and the Caribbean plate. Seismologists estimate that the Caribbean plate is heading eastward at a rate estimated at between seven and 20mm a year – a seemingly miniscule amount but enough to produce tremendous pressures building up beneath the earth’s crust as these vast slabs grind against each other. This movement has produced two fault lines, called strike-slip faults, to the north and south of Haiti: the Septentrional fault in the north and the Enriquillo-Plaintain Garden fault, which caused Tuesday’s disaster. Not moved in 250 years Earthquake Basics http://www.abag.ca.gov/bayarea/eqmaps/fixit/ch2/sld001.htm
  • First you have to get rid of what is broken Over $2 billion in aid has been raisedA
  • Of the 15,200 primary schools, 90% are private and managed by the communities, religious organizations and NGOs (Non Government Organizations). Haiti schools usually begin with students at the age of six. They are normally expected to finish their primary grades in six years. The enrollment rate for primary school is 67% and less than 30% of these reach the 6th grade. Children are needed at home for manual labor, so only a child who excels at school is considered for continued education in Haiti. This of course, is then available to only those parents who can afford the costs.
