This resource is now available with all of my earthquake resources in my EARTHQUAKE BUNDLE
This resource was created for use in a middle school earth science classroom. After introducing earthquakes, types of faults, and seismic waves, I thought I needed to change the pace in my classroom. Out of that came this project: students work in whatever size groups you choose (I do groups of 2 and 3) and create a poster. Poster topics include: Richter Scale, Tsunamis, California Earthquake of 1906, Japan Earthquake of 2011, Liquefaction (mudslides and landslides), and the prefix Seismo-. Posters are to include: 3 visuals, explanations to questions (provided), "Top 3," and a presentation.
A rubric is included!
EVERYTHING is editable!!!
Give 3 days of class time to work and one period for presentations. Grade projects as they present! A great way to introduce final topics for earthquakes and provide some variety in class activities.
