Hands-on Lessons, Labs, & Activities
  Modeling Faults - use a paper model from the USGS to see
    how the land changes during an earthquake
  Modeling Earthquake Waves - observe the types of seismic
    waves that occur during earthquakes
  Measuring Earthquake Waves- explore how scientists determine
    the epicenter of an earthquake
  Seismic Slinky - use a slinky to model earthquake waves. Learn
    the speed, direction and behavior of different waves which tell
    scientists about earthquakes
  Design an Earthquake Resistant Building - use toothpicks and
    marshmallows to make an earthquke resistant tower. adapted
    from an activity from TryEngineering.
  Whole Lotta Shaking Going On - Students will discuss how
    stresses between tectonic plates can produce earthquakes,
    describe approaches and limitations to earthquake prediction, and
    use a model earthquake machine to explore hypotheses about
    earthquakes. Lesson from NOAA
Multimedia and Online Resources
  On Shaky Ground - interactive from I Know That
  Make a Quake Earthquake Simulator
  Simulation: Inside the Haiti Earthquake - What decisions would
    you make as an earthquake survivor, aid worker, or journalist in
    Haiti after the earthquake? Inside the Haiti Earthquake is a first-
    person simulation based on documentary footage from Haiti and
