Kindness is a quality of being affectionate, generous and considerate. There are different ways of practicing kindness. Watch the movie by Room 6 to see how little acts of kindness can bring happiness to you and to the people around you.

Earthquake mural

This week we talked about Earthquakes and how people feel in an event of a natural disaster. We brainstormed all the sense words. We wanted to describe all these emotions in form of an Art. So we made this mural of sense words.

When earthquakes happen

When earthquakes happen there is a lot of life and property are lost. So people who were in the earthquake have to go to camps until there home are rebuilt with the city. After an earthquake happens all that is left is a pile of debris with cracked roads. Some  houses survive but the things inside don't survive. There are shattered windows broken floors or broken walls. The cost of the city's rebuild will be millions of dollars. But rebuilding a city takes a lot of time so people in the camps have to wait a long time until there home.

What could happen in an earthquake?

When earthquakes happen there is a loss of people's lives. Sometimes the whole city can get destroyed so the    reconstruction crew has to work hard and it requires millions of dollars. There is a scarcity of food and water. People have to sleep in camps for months together. When the magnitude hits over 6 it can derail trains tracks and cause huge tsunamis some people get emotional because they lose their family members.

How are Earthquakes caused

Earthquakes happen because of tectonic plates.Tectonic plates are plates that are pushed by molten and soft rocks. Also the molten rocks tries to come out of the inside of the earth but the earth's tectonic plates crust resists it. But sometimes the molten rocks put a lot of strong pressure and it moves the tectonic plates.  This causes an earthquake.
