PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Although it might not be the finest example of a science based film, San Andreas offers an outstanding opportunity to culminate an Earth Science unit by using higher level questioning techniques to compare and contrast what is good and bad in the film. Topics covered by the activity include plate boundaries, types of plate boundaries and what happens at these boundaries, earthquake studies including P-waves, S-waves, surface waves, wave speeds, the structure of Earth as it relates to earthquake waves and shadow zones, whether or not the earthquakes depicted in the film could be the result of transform boundaries or subduction boundaries, and a host of other related information. A student worksheet is included, a fully explained answer key for the teacher is included, and a couple of articles written by experts are included in the document as well. The initial thumbnail provides a portion of the answer key and what it looks like and the second thumbnail provides a portion of the what the student worksheet looks like.
