|Earthquakes and the Web|
In this activity students discover that earthquakes are among Earth's most spectacular natural phenomena and that in understanding what causes earthquakes we can use earthquake or seismic waves to learn about Earth's interior. Students also learn the other aspects of seismology (the study of earthquakes), which are important parts of any Earth Science program. Students will also learn more about how to use the computer as a research and instruction tool. They will find answers in the websites to some questions about earthquakes related to the Regents curriculum. Once they have answered the questions they will try the "Virtual Earthquake" activity on the computer.
