This activity is designed to help students incorporate paragraph writing skills with information about earthquakes. There are 6 pages with 9-11 facts on each page; students are to construct a well written paragraph using these facts. Information on each page is written in a note taking format; students will use these facts in their own sentences as they construct their paragraphs. Also included are two different rubrics for teachers to use to grade the final product. Oral Presentation rubrics are also included in case the teacher would like for students to present their information to the class.
This activity could be used in centers, for independent work, or a whole class practice. Students can work in small groups to compile their paragraphs into a longer paper.
