Using the chrome books students were set the challenge to create a news video to explain how communities prepare and collaborate in times of Natural Disaster?
These two students created characters to show their research using Stupeflix.
“This term we have all been learning about natural disasters. We were asked to create a media piece. We chose an interesting natural disaster…. cyclones!!! Ciaran and I hope you enjoy this news report because we worked quite hard on it.” http://patrickmsl.global2.vic.edu.au/
Madison, Jamie and Mia created an iMovie to help people understand how to prepare for a bushfire. It is very informative.
Yianni and Tully researched the impact of Earthquakes, what causes them to occur and how they affect communities. They suggest ways to prepare for earthquakes and what to do during an earthquake.
Over the past few weeks we have been researching the effects and causes of Natural Disasters. To assist our presentations students created their own unique models of the various disasters. Many of the models were moving and active. Here is a sample of creative designs.
Welcome back everyone to for the beginning of an exciting term. We are endeavoring to answer the question: “How does knowledge empower communities to support and collaborate in times of Natural Disasters?”

During this unit students will explore the way in which the earth changes especially the immediate changes seen in natural disasters. The students will develop understandings about the relationship between; earth (sea and land) and its atmosphere through scientific investigations. They will determine whether changes to the earth are geological or atmospheric, and establish some of the causes and effects of a range of natural disasters. They will investigate ways in which natural disasters may be prevented or managed in order to minimise damage. Photo Credit: bertknot via Compfight
Over the past few weeks we have made some interesting discoveries about Natural Disasters.
As a homework task we could create a model of any natural disaster. There were some amazing moving models including
Bushfires, Avalanches, Tsunamis, Earthquakes, Cyclones, Floods and of course- Volcanoes.
We discovered that the best mixture for a successful exploding volcano was dishwashing liquid, vinegar, bi-carb soda and food dye.
