Product Description
This resource is now available with all of my earthquake resources in my EARTHQUAKE BUNDLE.

This resource contains five student pages. (The 6th page is an answer key).
Page 1: Reading that relates plate tectonics to earthquakes. Terms introduced: elastic limit, fault. This is written at a middle school reading level, in terms that students can understand and relate to. Read an introduction to your students, and encourage highlighting.
Page 2: Basic earthquake vocabulary: fault line, focus, fault scarp, fault trace, seismic waves, epicenter. I go over the vocab and draw it on the board. Then color the diagram on page 3 according to the directions provided. Answer questions on page 3 as a class.

If time, read through types of faults on page 4.

Page 5 is a review of types of faults. You can use this for homework or as a warm-up.
