How big was that earthquake? The worksheet is a measuring activity where students must precisely measure the height of peaks on a seismogram and correlate this measurement to the Richter scale value of the earthquake. Accuracy counts! The answer key is provided.Quality document camera-ready images a
This PowerPoint covers the three different types of seismic waves produced by earthquakes. It also suggests on how students can demonstrate the different types of waves with a slinky. Words defined and illustrated are focus, epicenter, primary (P) waves, secondary (S) waves, surface waves, love wa
