If you are talking to your kids about Haiti

I just found this excellent, easy-to-understand "presentation" on the BBC News online website about how earthquakes happen. This news site has also been a great one for photos, videos, and news stories about Haiti that were appropriate for sharing with the kids.

And on the right hand sidebar, you can see that there are other animated presentations on other kinds of natural disasters, like tornadoes. This is a site I have bookmarked for coming back to when we are studying these things!
