Playing with Xtranormal

Over the next couple of weeks we will be experimenting with a cool web tool called Xtranormal to share our knowledge on natural disasters. This is a fantastic tool that allows you to create animated movies.
Yesterday we had a play with writing a basic script. Well done to the 'mystery' Room 15 student who had a play at home and made this great little clip.

Check it out!

What's the Plan Stan?

Our inquiry focus for this term Natural Disasters and how to prepare for them.

How they occur?
Information on historic disaster
How to keep safe when they occur?
