PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

I am always looking for a latitude/longitude earthquake lab that has NEW data and can never find one... so I made one! Have your students plot real earthquake locations from July 2016. Coordinates are given in degrees, minutes and seconds. Use both, or just have students round to the nearest degree. Minutes and seconds are included in case you would like to print out a larger scale map of a specific location. Use this as a review of latitude and longitude, and as a way to purposefully plot data to explore plate tectonics later! I've included 36 pages of data, allowing each student to plot real and different data. Please check out the preview file for instructions! HAPPY PLOTTING!

PS. I will be updating this file EVERY SUMMER for you!

PPS. A note about the price... I have to manipulate several pieces of data to make it user friendly for students. It takes a fair amount of time to do this! Again, I will update this data EVERY YEAR for you!

PPPS... although the preview file may have data from a pre-existing year, this file was updated on 8/8/16 to reflect the past July's seismic activity.
