Play the new StormSafe game
SES has released a new educational online game and accompanying lesson plans to coincide with StormSafe week 2013.
The new game allows users to help prepare a neighbourhood for a storm by undertaking important activities such as clearing gutters, trimming overhanging branches and placing loose items inside. The faster they can clear all the houses, the more golden stars they will receive.
After each house is made StormSafe, users will also receive an item for their emergency kit. At the completion of the game, users will have an excellent understanding of what they need to do to prepare their own house for a storm and what items they need to collect to create a home emergency kit.
A collection of lesson plans to reinforce key messages about storms have also been developed for foundation (Prep) up to Year 8. The lesson plans include all support material and worksheets as well as AusVELS curriculum connection links. They can be conducted before or after the game has been played and assist in consolidating students learning and understanding.
The online game and lesson plans can all be found on the StormSafe game page on the SES website.
