StormSafe Awareness Week is Monday 9 – Sunday 15 September 2013
Edunity and Klyp.co have produced the StormSafe education program for the Victoria State Emergency Service to teach parents, teachers and kids about preparing for storms.
Students can test who is the fastest mouse click in the west when they use the StormSafe Online Game to trim back overhanging tree branches, put away garden furniture, toys and trampolines and clear the gutters of leaf litter and muck.
The game reinforces the SES key messages of
- unsecured items in backyards can cause damage to people and property
- it’s easy to make your property storm safe
- kids can help their households to be storm safe.
Along with the game, Edunity have produced a set of lesson plans and activities for teachers, with full AusVELs links for Prep – Year 8.
