Product Description
A teaching lesson on tsunamis accompanied by a time line activity. The resource includes a description of a simple yet effective demonstration that compares how tsunamis are formed (earthquakes) to how other ocean waves are formed (the wind). The resource provides a high quality image as well as graphic notes on tsunamis and how they are formed. A list of recommended instructional videos is included.

The timeline activity has students plotting significant tsunamis in the last 100 years. The timeline comes with the student data sheet as well as a timeline already labeled with hash marks and dates which allows you to differentiate the activity. A grading rubric for the assignment is included.
