16 Worksheets in Earthquakes, Volcanoes and Plate Tectonics

-------------------------------------------------------------

Mercalli/richter Sheet
Handout primarily discussing the modified mercalli scale. Helps students understnad difference between magnitude and intensity


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.


San Andreas Fault [slide By Slide Description]
Fault movement, especially at plate boundaries, is largely an underground or even underwater process hidden from our view. But the boundary between the North American and Pacific Plates interfaces in a line that runs from the Mexican border north.


Tectonic Time Trials
Jeopardy style questions. Divide the class in two groups and have fun answering these questions.


Travel Time Curve
Students use their reference tables to answer questions regarding earthquake epicenters and time of origin.


Plotting Epicenters
The data below shows the P- and S-wave arrival time difference determined from seismograms from three different cities, for three different earthquake events. Use your travel time curve to determine the distance to epicenter for each city/earthquake.
