WED 7 AUG – LIFE ON EARTH

Imagine there are no humans, no plants and no animals on earth and a traveller from a far-away planet comes to visit. How would you explain to them what living on Earth is like right now? Let’s make a zine or newspaper to show them what they need to know about us!

WED 14 AUG – ANIMALS OF THE APOCALYPSE

Hold on a minute, no animals? – But surely if there wasn’t any life on earth there would still be traces of animals – we still know about dinosaurs even if they don’t exist anymore, right? What could that look like? Come and make 3D animals to find out!

WED 21 AUG – LANDSCAPE OF DOOM

Okay, the apocalypse has happened, the world has ended – what now? There has to be something left, there can’t just be nothing there. This sounds really dramatic, so let’s build a stage set and imagine our landscape of doom and gloom!

WED 28 AUG – FLYING FLAGS FOR THE FUTURE

Finally, some light at the horizon! – The world is brand new and you are the first person on earth making your mark. Create your own flag or banner to show your intentions and hopes for a bright new future.
