While it would be a scary and traumatizing experience to be where a real earthquake occurred, your class will have the educational and engaging experience of simulating one with this tabbed booklet! Teach your class all of the relevant vocabulary, bring in reading and writing, and you’ve got yourself an interdisciplinary lesson!
Unfortunately, with the large demands on reading and math from the Common Core, science is often pushed to the side. If your district is like mine, then you often have very little time to dedicate to science, yet you are still expected to fully cover the entire curriculum. This resource was created to help save you time and to cover the important science concepts, all while still meeting the nonfiction criteria of the Common Core.
