Earthquakes, Volcanoes and Plate Tectonics Share-a-thon 57 Files

A share-a-thon is a place where teachers can voluntarily upload their files for other teachers to use. When a teacher submits a file, it is catalogued and placed into a database.

 


Plate Tectonic Internet Activity
Go to an internet site and answer questions based on it.

Planet Earth in Cross Section
Devise a model of the layers of the Earth to scale.

Locations of earthquake epicenters on Earth Map
Here are a few nice USGS maps that might be useful. I copied the maps onto transparencies and created a lab where students ultimately overlaid the transparencies to compare and contrast the locations of earthquakes, volcanoes, and plate boundaries.

Locations of volcanoes on Earth Map
Here are a few nice USGS maps that might be useful. I copied the maps onto transparencies and created a lab where students ultimately overlaid the transparencies to compare and contrast the locations of earthquakes, volcanoes, and plate boundaries.

The Earth's plates
Here are a few nice USGS maps that might be useful. I copied the maps onto transparencies and created a lab where students ultimately overlaid the transparencies to compare and contrast the locations of earthquakes, volcanoes, and plate boundaries.

World Map (Mercator)
Here are a few nice USGS maps that might be useful. I copied the maps onto transparencies and created a lab where students ultimately overlaid the transparencies to compare and contrast the locations of earthquakes, volcanoes, and plate boundaries.

Regents Questions
Here are regents questions for Plate Tectonics.

Tsunami Labs
In this lab you'll study seismograms from 3 different seismic stations recording the magnitude 9.0 Sumatra earthquake of 12/26/2004. By comparing the arrival times of waves on each seismogram, you'll be able to determine distance to the epicenter.

Analysis of a NYS Earthquake
Students will analyze a New York State earthquake that happened April 20th, 2002.

Earthquake Patterns Lab
Students will investigate worldwide patterns of earthquakes and determine the relationship of these patterns to types of plate boundaries.
