Mar 30, 2006
This resource is used in the Living in Earthquake Country Teaching Box, Lesson 5, activity 1: "1906 vs. 1989: A Comparison of Two Major Earthquakes". Part of the resource is used (section 2) to provide an exercise in which students investigate the relationship between the rock types present in the Oakland area and the location of the Nimitz Freeway, which collapsed as a result of the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake. Teachers have the option of assigning other sections of this resource as needed.
