The first is a downloadable interactive from edumedia sciences: It is a free simulation that you can download. You can also drag it into a notebook file (it is a flash object). They make you install a program called ebox to download it, but you can also just run it from the website. It is a pretty good little interactive to describe how and earthquake leads to a tsunami
The other resource is a free brainpop (my all-time favorite educational website) video on tsunamis found here. They usually make current event videos free so this will be a good way to help students understand how the earthquake in Japan caused so much damage.
Hopefully these will help you if you have the chance to teach about this event.
