FBV: Individual liberty – People have their freedom taken from them when a natural disaster occurs in their country. We look at how freedom is restored to these people. 

Cultural Capital: This will develop the habit of empathy as they will be asked to imagine themselves in a situation such as an earthquake and to decide the best course of action. Some student may have also experienced such hazards and it would benefit them to understand them more fully. Lastly, students will be able to understand what they hear on the news more.

They will be more well-rounded individuals as they understand the types of difficulties that other people face in countries that experience natural hazards on a regular basis.
