Learning from the Christchurch Earthquake

During 2010, Christchurch had a 7.1 Richter Scale earthquake. The earthquake caused liquefaction. Dr Nicol say “The Christchurch experience teaches us that liquefaction might in some cases cause bigger problems for people than movement on the fault itself.”

The 2010 earthquake Richter scale was 7.1, but nobody died.

The second earthquake was on the 22nd of February 2011, this earthquake’s Richter scale was 6.3. Unlike the earthquake in 2010, this one was worst... 185 people were killed, mostly when multi-storied buildings collapsed.

Scientists are using Christchurch earthquakes as an example to learn from it, so they can warn people to make good choices about where they live.

All About Me 2016

All About Me

Hi, my name is Shannon. I am a year 7 student at Glenbrae School in Auckland, NZ. I am in Room 8 and my teacher is Mr. Nath.

I like to play Tennis. I like to write long paragraphs and I really like Science, because it’s so creative. I am a Belieber - A real fan of Justin Bieber. I have a 5 month old puppy named Woody. My favourite colour is blue. I can understand a little bit of Hindi.

I like horror movies and comedy too. I think planets and outer space are really interesting and breath-taking.

My goal for 2016 is to be more confident in class and talk more in group activities. I really want to reach the National Standards in all curriculum areas and most of all achieve a higher level in Mathematics.
