Using action research, this study aims to investigate the implementation and effect of young children`s disaster curriculum in a Tsou aboriginal classroom. The first author and preschool techer served as co-teachers nd taught the Tsou young children who suffered through Typhoon Morakot.The lessons spanned three months. Data sources included classroom observations, young children`s interviews, young children`s worksheetsand artwork, teacher`s interviews, reflection notes on teaching, eatc. Findings revealed that (1) the young children`s conceptions of a typhoon made some improvement, such as their concept of typhoon., typhoon disaster, and preparation for typhoon. (2) The young children had more negative feelings about a typhoon. (3) Most of the young children accepted the natural disaster curriculum with science and arts integration. (4) The co-teachers had certain difficulties on teaching and had to solve the problems of classroom management and guiding young children to think through questions posed in the classroom. Finally, this research makes suggestions on the design of young children`s natural disaster curriculum and recommendations for future related research. It is expected that this study will provide useful ways for early childhood educators to teach young children about natural disaster.
