One third of Joso City area was under water due to the flood caused by the Kanto-Tohoku torrential rain of September 2015, during which numerous delays and isolation of evacuation were experienced. Considering the above, we started a project of TimeLine by Everybody, aiming at reducing the number of people who fail to evacuate to zero, under which the concept of “My-TimeLine” was developed. To disseminate “My-TimeLine”, we developed the “Nige-Kid” as the teaching tools that help elementary and junior high school students to create their own “My-TimeLine” in less than one hour. In the process of developing the “Nige-Kid”, we conducted disaster resilience education to Joso-City elementary school children of producing their “My-TimeLine” using the prototype “Nige-Kid”. The results of education indicated that the knowledge of flood risk and preparedness were properly enhanced through the consideration process of the “My-TimeLine” using the “Nige-Kid”.
