I'm still wrapping my head around copyright law, so I've credited all the original authors and sources in this article - please tag me if I've done it wrong so I can fix it! This is just an article I found interesting that I tweaked for readability by students in grades 3-5 who have an interest in geology or natural disasters. Next time your students ask, "when do we actually use math in the real world?" this is a great go-to! Just a little printable I thought I'd share. Hope you like it!
