This new topic, we will be investigating what causes earthquakes, why they happen, their effects and how they can be measured. We will be participating in a workshop with a theatre production company. There will be opportunities to discover what makes tectonic plates move and why buildings are not able to withstand the force of earthquakes. Our writing outcome will be a formal event report. We will be reading Refugee boy as our class read and our class text for the topic is Street beneath my feet.
