This activity centers around the Modified Mercalli Intensity Scale, which contains brief descriptions of what people might have felt in an earthquake and what might have happened to buildings and natural features. The different levels of the scale are designated with Roman numerals, and they correspond to groups of effects that are produced by about the same amount of shaking. During this activity, ...

These activities present evidence, illustrations and visualizations for some of the changes in the Earth's crust. Students will learn to categorize materials as either chemically or physically weathered, describe how a glacier can change the crust of the Earth (erratic rocks, hills, scraping), and identify at least five examples of changes in the crust within walking distance of their school.

This is a brief overview of the Theory of Plate Tectonics. According to the theory, the Earth's surface layer, or lithosphere, consists of seven large and 18 smaller plates that move and interact in various ways. Along their boundaries, they converge, diverge, and slip past one another, creating the Earth's seismic and volcanic activities. These plates lie atop a layer of partly molten rock called ...

In this activity students explore earthquake hazards and damage to buildings by constructing model buildings and subjecting the buildings to ground vibration (shaking similar to earthquake vibrations) on a small shake table. After the initial testing, instructors can illustrate specific design issue problems with model buildings that were successful by modifying them with a specific weakness. Poor ... Full description.
