Kid Tsunami Survivors

Some Japanese tsunami victims had to leave everything behind, including their houses and all of their things.  I would like you to watch the video below and think about the things that you value.

Imagine that you are collecting donations to send to kids who lost their possessions in the tsunami.  Brainstorm at list of at least 5 objects that you could send them to make them feel at home.  Start by thinking of things that you love and value.  Be creative and remember to think about the small things in life that help you keep a positive attitude.

Once you have posted your response, read the responses posted by your peers and reply thoughtfully to at least two other students.  Compliment strong points, make connections, ask questions and build on ideas shared!

Mr. Boettger  :-)

      Logan, why would you bring them an iPod without a charger? Plus, their internet is probably down so they can't get any games or songs on it.

      I agree Sarah, i pretty much said the same thing although, do they get taught to read and speak English in Japan? Because of they don't then there is no reason for giving them English books, unless you were going to send them Japanese books. :)

      Its a good idea to send building materials but just sending them wont help much if I were you I would send people to help build the homes and get the city running again.

  16. Sarah L to Logan:
    Why would you give them an IPod? You should give them something more useful to help them get there life back.

    Hailey to Gage:
    They need health first like food, water and shelter then maybe some toys or books and they cant use TV because they have no satellite anymore and internet.

    Jon, thats not how to spell clothes. And you said you would want to send six things, your suposed to come up with five. So you could take chocolate bar off your list because there are better things to send then chocolate.

    1. Food because they are probably very hungry.
    2. Water because they are probably very thrust.
    3. Clothing because they probably have been wearing their clothes for a long time.
    4. Building materials because they could rebuild their homes.
