    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:
