Seismology

This unit engages students learn what creates waves caused by earth movements and how to interpret seismographs and seismograms.

This unit engages students in becoming amateur seismologists. Using hands-on, minds-on activities, students learn what creates waves caused by earth movements, how to interpret seismographs and seismograms, and how to develop a research project using seismographic data. At the end of the unit, students present their research through poster presentations. (DRAFT - needs NGSS practices)
