Product Description
This is a tutorial on using the Earthquake P-wave and S-wave Travel Time chart (on ESRT page 11) for Earth Science Regents students. I find this especially great for special education and ELL students!

In the 4 page worksheet, there are detailed instructions on how to use the chart to answer eight types of questions, starting from basic questions and ending with multi-step problems. There are 20 practice problems.

The PowerPoint is a step-by-step tutorial for each practice problem on this worksheet. The PowerPoint is great for a teacher to use with a class or for students to use on their own.
