A natural disaster is generally caused by something happening in nature, such as the weather. Unfortunately, natural disasters can cause serious injuries and destroy many things.
It’s important to learn about natural disasters so you can find out what to do if they happen. This is information you can share with other people too. Being prepared for natural disasters can save lives. It’s also interesting to learn about why natural disasters happen and develop our understanding of science and geography.
We have been doing some reading this week to find out some background information about natural disasters. We look forward to working on some projects and activities throughout the next month to develop our understanding.
Today the 4KM students learnt how to use Tagxedo and created a word cloud demonstrating what they think of when they hear the term “natural disasters”.
