This helped me create a picture in my head of the ground turning from solid to liquid. In my head I couldn’t stand up anymore, I was falling over and all the stuff around me fell to the ground as well. Everything was moving.

IALT: find the main idea in a story

This story talks about the Earthquake that hit the South Island of New Zealand recently.
Find three key ideas in the story, then write 50 words to summarise.

Three key ideas in this story are
  • strong 5.7 magnitude earthquake struck Christchurch on Sunday.
  • The earthquake caused cliffs to collapse into the sea but no major damage to the city was reported.
  • The epicentre was 15 kms (9 miles) east of Christchurch.
  • and at a shallow depth of 15 km (9 miles), said the country’s seismological body Geonet.

Summary of the story (put it into your own words) - 50 words
Start here:

An earthquake is a geological event inside the earth that generates strong vibrations. When the vibrations reach the surface, the earth shakes, often causing damage to natural and manmade objects, and sometimes killing and injuring people and destroying their property. Earthquakes can occur for a variety of reasons; however, the most common source of earthquakes is movement along a fault.
Some earthquakes occur when tectonic plates, large sections of Earth's crust and upper mantle, move past each other. Earthquakes along the San Andreas and Hayward faults in California occur because of this. Earthquakes also occur if one plate overruns another, as on the western coast of South America , the northwest coast of North America , and in Japan. If plates collide but neither is overrun, as they do crossing Europe and Asia from Spain to Vietnam, earthquakes result as the rocks at the abutting plates compress into high mountain ranges. In all three of these settings, earthquakes result from movement along faults.

IALT: write a poem about an earthquake

Write a poem about earthquakes.
Maybe an acrostic poem, or any other type of poem you want.

Try to use powerful words from the video, like these
  • Desperate
  • Disorganised
  • Dig frantically in hope
  • A community overwhelmed
  • A mound of rubble
  • Catastrophe

Start here:my body shakes from the cold
that’s normal - at least it's what i’m told
The world is breaking down my feet it like am going to fall with joy and make it stop.

IALT: Use powerful words to describe a setting

IALT draw a picture to describe a sound

IALT draw a picture to describe a sound. i was drawing a picture what The earthquake sound like and look like and think it sound like thunder.

IALT think from somebody else's point of view

Imagine you are one of these people who have been in a terrible earthquake.
Think about how the day that the earthquake hit.
  • What were you doing before it hit?
  • Who were you with?
  • When the earthquake hit, how did you feel? Scared, confused, alarmed?
  • What did you do? Run, scream, get scared and stay still, cry?
  • What did you do next? Try to find friends/family? Hide in a doorway or under a table? Run away?
  • How were you feeling throughout the day?
  • What happened at night - where did you sleep? Was your house okay? Was your family okay?

Write a 100 word (or more) diary entry about your imaginary day.
Try to be as descriptive as possible (use lots of powerful words!)

Start here:the people felt the shaking the were running when noting fell down and people felt very terrified and scared then people run  and scream as loud and some people got very very scared also crying they got a shook and got hit from the houses.And some family hide from the earthquakes so they won’t die and the mum run away sol their kids can be safe.And i seen it i felt very sad and upset and at night there family wasn’t okay and there house wasn’t okay and there city was not okay and people were very not okay what happen.

WALT: describe the feelings of people

Watch the clip again and carefully watch what the people are doing.
  • Why do some run away?
  • Why do some stand still?
  • When the bridge collapses, what do the people do?
  • Why do they try to get into the van?

Use these questions to help you think about the way people might have been feeling during this earthquake.
Write 30 words about how they might be feeling.

Start here:What the people did they ran with their kids to save them and some stand there and got hit from the big house also some drive off with the van but they didn’t make it.The people running and screaming and screaming as loud.people didn’t know what to do they were are afraid it was shaking so so hard people couldn’t move there self so they go hit bad
