Year 8 have recently been learning about natural hazards and disasters. As a way of consolidating the topic the group made ‘natural disaster’ board games. Games were made based on Monopoly, Snakes and Ladders and Risk. The students included positive elements such as receiving education on how to respond to a tsunami or getting aid to build a cyclone proof house. An earthquake hitting your village or a flood meant a negative move. The students also made up questions that the players would need to answer. They all enjoyed both making and playing their games.
