The following Bloom's Taxonomy inspired activities look at Earthquakes. It focuses on identifying earthquakes, human preparation for earthquakes and scientific equipment used during the natural disaster.
Using Blooms Taxonomy Framework, this resource will enable you to use it as a tool for higher order thinking and build upon the work that you have taught them about the subject. Staring with basic skills such as knowledge and understanding, students then will be challenged to apply facts that they learned and apply it in creative ways.
For example, a Create activity will have students develop a safety device to be used in an earthquake. Students will need to compile all the knowledge they have gained throughout the unit in order to devise something useful.
It is great to be used as an independent task or a homework extension for students that need an extra challenge. The framework allows you to date when they have completed a task so you can keep track of their progress. In the classroom, I do not expect the students to complete an entire column before moving on but like them to complete at least 3 before advancing to the next skill set.
As a heads up, some of these activities will prove to be of more value when completed together as a whole class, and therefore you may want to select those activities and use them as class competitions or whole class learning experiences.
