While we were away from school for the long Labour Day weekend, we were horrified to learn from television and the newspapers that there had been an earthquake in New Zealand. We’ve been discussing it and the students would love to hear about this from New Zealand students.
Did you feel the earthquake in your school?
How bad was the earthquake?
Was anyone hurt?
How much damage did it do?
Did it knock out your power?
Did it hit all of New Zealand or just a small part?
Did you ever feel an earthquake?
One student went to a place where they simulate earthquakes and give numbers like 4.4.
What was the number of your earthquake?
