In this project, Years 5 and 6 explored the different types of natural disasters and how communities can protect themselves when they occur.

They also made their own safety documentaries to raise awareness of natural disasters. These were accompanied by stop-animation effects, posters and survival kits.

The students also created their own ‘mini-worlds’ for the final exhibition to further demonstrate the impact that natural disasters can have on communities.
