Gulay, Hulya
Educational Research and Reviews, v5 n10 p624-630 Oct 2010
The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of the earthquake education program which was prepared for 5 to 6 year old children and to draw attention to the importance of parent participation. The earthquake education program was applied to 93 children and 31 parents in the province of Denizli situated in the first degree seismic zone in Turkey. The study included two experimental groups and one control group. The first group was the experimental group in which the earthquake education program with parent participation was applied (n=31). The second group was the experimental group in which the earthquake education program was applied without parent participation (n=31). The last group was the control group in which the earthquake education program was not applied (n=31). According to the study results, the mean of earthquake knowledge scores of the experimental group (Group 1) in which the earthquake education program was applied with parent participation was found to be significantly higher than that of the second experimental group (Group 2) in which the activities were performed without parent participation and higher than that of the control group (Group 3). The findings indicated that the program carried out with parent participation was effective. (Contains 5 tables.)
