The site allows children of all ages to test their knowledge of what FEMA is and the disasters that they respond to by playing a variety of different games. These games (e.g. Disaster Math, Hurricane I.Q Quiz, etc.) test the player's mathematical skills, concentration levels and reasoning abilities.

This lesson focuses on relative versus absolute velocity. Students can use a program (must be connected to the internet) to calculate the different types of velocities for different points along plate boundaries. A very brief description of the earth's plates is given, with links to additional information and images. Includes discussion questions.
