You are about to embark on a journey about natural disasters that have happened in Australia. Yes, maybe even where you live!

A natural disaster may be in the form of a tropical cyclone, drought, bushfire, flood, heatwave, severe storm, storm surge, earthquake or landslide.

Can you think of any natural disasters that have happened where you live? Ask your family and friends if they have ever experienced any natural disasters.

For this WebQuest, you will need to arrange yourselves into groups of four students. You will need to research and report on a natural disaster that has impacted on communities in Australia.

It will be up to your group to decide how you would like to present your information. Some ideas include: a digital presentation, a book, a newspaper report, an information brochure, a play, a web page etc. Be as creative as you like as this will form part of your assessment!
