PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Modified earthquake epicenter lab in which students use data from 3 seismograph stations to determine the location of the earthquake epicenter.

Fun and step by step walkthrough to make evaluating the seismograph data smooth and successful. On a map of the United States, students determine the earthquake epicenter distance from Breckenridge, Colorado, Black Rock Desert, Nevada, and Nogales, Arizona. After each station, students determine if the earthquake epicenter can be determined culminating in a location after 3 trials.

Modified for students in earth science classrooms. Used for special education, college prep practice, and college prep alternative assessment.

This is an effective teaching tool one on one, in small groups, and as a class when using a Smart Board/Promethean Board/Projection.
