V03: Materials

The materials associated with this video clip are rather simple.

The worksheet itself is a two-sided sheet of paper with these four questions and white space for answering each. One question is the “what do you notice” question, and students can be expected to respond with more mature reactions the second time the video is shown at the end of the module.

  1. What important things do you notice in the video?
  2. Where do landslides occur? Circle a few areas on the map below. (An image with a world map colored for topography is included. Find any that you like by googling images for “world topography” or similar.)
  3. There have been three recent landslides in the news in BC, in the worst (from a damage perspective), 4 people were killed and several houses destroyed. Describe what you know about this (if you don’t know much that’s fine, Brett will post a news story about it, see what you can figure out about it).
  4. What do you think you need to know about landslides to be a survivor?

The worksheet used at the end of the lesson is nearly identical – it contains questions 1, 3, and 4.

Finally, the video clip used can be found on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xsXQBnZ_xjI . Other clips might serve your needs equally well.
