Product Description
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 and notes will enable you to present a professional teaching presentation on seismographs and seismograms. An image is included that shows how the difference in arrival times between S and P waves determines how far away the earthquake is. This resource also includes links to short instructional videos on this topic.

This packet also provides the student sheet for a bar graph that plots the most powerful earthquakes ever recorded in the world. Graph paper is included.

Finally, a 15 clue crossword puzzle is included that comes with and without a word bank, which allows you to differentiate the assignment.
