Getting Ready!

We have begun learning about earthquakes and other emergencies in our class. We have also been studying how to discuss mistakes. For example, people say:
  1. We should have made an earthquake kit. 
  2. Maybe we could have found more survivors.
  3. That must have been a terrible shock! 
  4. They shouldn't have built unsafe schools.
