        After the Quake: Preserving the Artifacts of Kathmandu | Global Oneness Project

        Earthquakes and other natural disasters can destroy valuable cultural artifacts, but local and global efforts can protect and restore relics for future generations.

        Students view a photo essay, "Protecting Cultural Heritage After the Nepal Quake", by photographer Taylor Weidman, taken after the earthquake which struck Nepa in April of 2015. The photo essay shows the damage to world heritage sites as well as religious artwork from the ancient temples.

        In this lesson, students explore the cultural artifacts in Nepal and discuss ways in which artifacts are used in their daily lives. Reflective writing prompts are also included for students to demonstrate their understanding of the story.
