Congratulations on completing The Pillowcase Project! You have learned important ways to stay safe, be prepared, and take action during an emergency. Don’t forget to practice the steps you have learned at home and with friends, and share this information with others who are important to you.
On this website, you can download activity sheets to learn more about earthquakes, floods, home fires, hurricanes, thunderstorms, tornadoes, tsunamis, volcanoes, wildfires, and severe winter storms. Each activity sheet has a fun activity and more information about being prepared for these hazards!
Download one or download them all and work on the activities by yourself, with a friend, or with your family. Visit the links at the bottom of each sheet to learn more!
Please share with us as well! Parent and/or guardian feedback is valuable to our program. This survey will take less than 5 minutes to complete and will help us make sure that the training thousands of youth receive in emergency preparedness is relevant and effective. As a thank you for your time a single use 10% discount code is provided to www.RedCrossStore.org after submitting the survey. We appreciate your support.

Are You a Teacher?
Thank you for welcoming The Pillowcase Project into your classroom. This American Red Cross program aims to bring emergency preparedness education to 3rd through 5th graders across the United States. We truly enjoyed the opportunity to talk with your students about emergency preparedness, and we hope that you and your students learned a lot from our presentation.
If you would like to keep the learning going, we have available the following resources to be used in your classroom:
These materials can be used in conjunction with the posters you received in class along with the Hazard Activity Sheets also available on this page.
Throughout the presentation, the My Preparedness Workbook, and the Science of Safety teaching kit, we stress the importance of Learn, Practice, Share:
These interlocking concepts allow students to explore the science behind emergency preparedness. Students will also learn about how emergencies are experienced in the real world, so that they will understand both the environmental causes of natural hazards and what people should do to prepare themselves, their families, and their communities for emergency situations.
We hope that these materials are helpful and that you will be able to use them to better prepare your students for emergencies of all kinds.
Please also consider completing the brief educator survey available on this page so we can continue improving our materials with your valuable feedback.
