Simulate and demonstrate the power of an earthquake!
It will be easy for your students to understand the forces that cause earthquakes to occur after they complete the activities in Earth Shakes. Using an interactive approach, students will model a strikeslip fault and see its possible destruction as the plate slips to relieve pressure! They will demonstrate S waves and P waves. Then your budding geologists will assume the role of a wave in an earth shake! It will be easy to find the epicenter of a earthquake using new understandings to solve the puzzle.
