This easily built classroom apparatus is ideal for gaining a better understanding of how earthquakes work and how they are recorded. The apparatus consists of a heavy object that is dragged steadily with an elastic cord. Although pulled with a constant velocity, the heavy object repeatedly slides and then stops. A small vibration sensor, attached to a computer display, graphically monitors this motion, ... Full description.

This is an exercise based on the geologic hazard of land subsidence in areas of karst terrain. A brief introduction is given to ground water, the development of karst, and the resulting collapse features due to the lowering of the water table. Photos and an animation support the discussion. Users are directed to print out a question sheet that is intended to guide exploration of the Edwards Aquifer ... Full description.

This lesson plan teaches students some of the basics of earthquakes and volcanoes. It also asks them to think about how people living in cities and suburbs must plan ahead by constructing sturdy buildings and preparing their homes and themselves for the possibility of a natural disaster. Students will therefore be introduced to some basic concepts of physical geography, as well as some of the ways ... Full description.

In this activity, students explore how the movement of tectonic plates forms mountains, volcanoes, oceans, and earthquakes. It first describes the plates and the various types of interaction at plate boundaries. An interactive map of the world shows the relationship between plate boundaries and earthquakes, allowing the student to click on selected place to explore a volcano, mountain, hotspot or ...

These two programs are available for free download from this website. Also included is the technical information users might need to have the program running in the classroom, including how to update the database of earthquakes. Seismic/eruption is a program that plots the epicenter of all earthquakes within a time period, geographic region, and magnitude chosen by the user. This program also does ... Full description.
