Product Description
This Gallery Walk makes use of graphics and text to show students the cause and effects of earthquakes. Students will be required to make observations and inferences based on the information found at each station. They will travel to 5 different locations around the world to observe images and read accounts of each historical earthquake.

This Lesson Includes:

Interactive Worksheets with Graphic Organizers and Conclusion.

(Posters for 6 Gallery Walk Stations of unique earthquake locations around the world that include text and graphics for students to make observations and inferences are not included and are found in a separate download)


Next Generation Science Standards
