This week for science we are going to look at before and after images in locations where a natural disaster has hit. You will then select one of the images and write a Venn Diagram explaining the similarities and differences between the images.
Once you have completed a draft, you can write up a good copy for your Writers’ Gift.
Last science session we learnt about what causes earthquakes. Today we will look at how earthquakes are measured.
Over the last 2 weeks we have been synthesising from non-fiction and fiction texts. This week we are going to watch a video from Behind the News to synthesise from. Remember when we synthesise we add to our thinking or change our thoughts about a topic, character or storyline.
The video from Behind the News is based on Hurricane Irma.
You will need to write down your before, during and after thinking. We will then put our thinking into a synthesising response.
Our first Inquiry focus area for term 4 is cyclones.

Today the senior unit held their inquiry expo based on the changing earth. The students did an excellent job, showing off their web-sites, glogsters, mind-maps, videos, science experiments and science reports. Below are some images from the day.
