Natural disasters are events that cause traumatic experiences for every human being, but they affect each individual in different ways. This is especially true for young children. Young children tend to have more difficulty in coping with traumatic events due to their limited life experiences, problem-solving skills, and ability to express their feelings and needs. The purpose of this activity is to measure students' understanding of landslide disaster mitigation and their increased concern for the surrounding environment.
