ShakeOut Activities Grades K - 2

By using the real life story of Kamome, a boat whose travels across the Pacific Ocean from Japan to California began with the 2011 earthquake and tsunami in Japan, a concrete example is provided for students to explore, better understand, and prepare for these geologic events through the participation in classroom lessons designed to articulate with The Extraordinary Voyage of Kamome.    This activity is meant to augment California’s ShakeOut Drop Cover and Hold On Drill, held every year on the third Thursday in October.  It will take a minimum of one 30 minute classroom session but can be expanded for up to three 50 minute classroom sessions.

Age Group: 
K-2
