Natural Disaster- Incursion by Monash Science

March8

The students of Grade 5 and 6 participated in an excellent learning experience through an incursion at school presented by the Monash Science faculty. A number of stations were set around the topics – layers of the earth, tectonic plates, volcanic eruption, which relates to our topic ‘Weather and Climate’. The students understood the difference between a disaster and a hazard. They received hands on experience followed by discussion about how Natural Disasters occur. It was an exciting and great learning experience for all the students.

The excitement can be seen on their faces. This would not have been the case if a real disaster took place.

These students do not want to take a risk and have taken precautions to keep away from the eruption by standing at a safe distance.

They are in awe of what they have just created- a volcanic eruption.
