This flickr stream might be of some interest:

Yeah, it's killed a lot of people. There are pictures of some dead people in that stream - just so as you know before you click the link. All copyright as well fwiw.
I loved the words you wrote to me/But that was bloody yesterday

Hi,
this youtube clip is short but illustrates that animals react ahead of humans to the onset of earthquakes

Thanks Paul that's great.
We have set Yr 9s a major piece of research this week (scheduled - they do half-termly 'research studies' in KS3) and it was on Kobe vs Sichuan - we have told them they can research Haiti now instead of Sichuan if they want.
Awful really how in just 20 months one terrible earthquake just gets superceded by an even more terrible one...

I've uploaded a couple of ppts and a movie (aimed at KS3) to

http://www.4shared.com/dir/28500522/7b82097d/Haiti.html

Password if it asks is SLN

They're not going to win any prizes but they may be useful to someone!

The idea for "I don't know..... but I do know" came from a powerpoint someone did on the Sichuan earthquake.

Hi

http://www.geographyalltheway.com/recent-geography/haitian-earthquake.htm

I have added a free resource to geographyalltheway.com about the Haitian Earthquake.  It is a set of tasks focused upon the question 'Why was the Haitian Earthquake so deadly?' - I think it works for most KS3 or KS4 classes with teacher led differentiation. I used it today with Y8 and Y9.

Feedback always gratefully received.

Movie looks brilliant, thanks for the resources.  However, it doesn't let me download it.  I wanted to show it to my form group as the school is raising money for the country.

Whenever I press download it just goes back to log in page and then back to movie.  Any ideas why?  Maybe the file is too big or something?  Or am I just doing something wrong?!

Any help greatly appreciated!

Looks great, cheers Richard. Will give this one a go with the Y9's this week. Take care.

Thanks to all for the ppts and other resources. I'm currently using a mixture of these with my classes. Have to say I'm just a little bit surprised by the number of pupils who seem unaware of what has happened in Haiti...

Here's another interesting article, this time highlighting the links between New Orleans (& Hurricane katrina) and Haiti:
