Earthquake Powerpoint NSTA from Robert Nunez


I got this Powerpoint (Robert Nunez) from the NSTA list as it was posted by one of our members, Stephen Kiouses [stephen_kiouses@khsd.k12.ca.us]. It has actual news photos. When I showed it to my students it really impacted them.

I think we can make this more interactive to make it even better--either with class discussion questions or some other activity. For example, we could have our students do clay models of plate movement showing convergent, divergent and transform fault or conservative movement. I figured I'd post it and we could work to make it interactive.

peglowjp: I am working on earthquakes right now with my students (9th grade). One great interactive cite that could accompany this presentation could be National Geographic's Forces of Nature: http://environment.nationalgeographic.com/environment/natural-disasters/forces-of-nature.html?section=e

My students really enjoyed this cite.
