Disasters Downunder Unit Celebration

We will be celebrating this terms unit of work on Thursday the 3rd of September at 6pm in the Learning Gallery.

We look forward to seeing friends and families there. 🙂


Disasters Downunder

Are you a Volcanologist, Seismologist or a Meteorologist?

Can you tell me an interesting fact about the natural disaster you are researching? (Earthquakes, Volcanoes, Tsunamis, Cyclones, Droughts or Bushfires)

Do you have any wonderings about any of the disasters?

If so please post the question here and hopefully one of the other ‘scientists’ can answer it for you.

If you don’t receive an answer to your wondering you might like to find the answer to your question yourself by using the Disasters Downunder blog.

Last night we celebrated the terms work by inviting friends and families to the Learning Gallery to showcase our work. We also shared with the Foundation to year 5 students this morning. The buzz in the Learning Gallery was fabulous!

What did you think about the Disasters Downunder unit and the showcase?
