WEEK 8 HOMEWORK

APOLLO PARKWAYS EARTHQUAKE

Here is a scenario that we have created for homework.

Scientists have told us there is a fault line right through the Greensborough area. We are unsure when or if an earthquake will occur. You need to prepare a survival kit and plan so you are ready to respond.
Think about the services that may be affected in the Greensborough area – how will this impact your survival plan?

Create an infographic that displays the following:

10 items that you will need to take with you in order for survival – give a reason why each item is included your survival kit.

Find a clear map of Greensborough, insert it into Explain Everything and locate important services such as hospitals, medical centres and shelted refuge areas.

Draw your escape route from your home – what is the safest and fastest way for you to leave the area?

Create a checklist of ‘must do’s before you leave’ – this could include taking medication and collecting important photos and documents…

Here are some examples of infographics:
