New website launch! Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) have just launched a new website for children. It gives practical information on how to prepare for flooding as well as how to keep safe near flood water and this includes how to keep pets safe too. There’s a flood game that can be downloaded and reinforces the key messages of keeping safe around flood water and of being prepared. There are some short informative animations to help get the message across as well. The website also contains information about how flooding happens.
If this is a topic you are covering in the classroom you can also visit Education Scotland’s website Ready for Emergencies as it has learning journeys and resources to support lessons on flooding and severe weather.
This is a topic that can be used as a context for learning in science, health and wellbeing and social studies.
