Earthquake Mini-Unit

Sunday, May 31, 2009

We live near the Ring of Fire. So for the past couple of days we have been experiencing some earthquakes. See here for a little more information. This is the first time that Noah remembers feeling an earthquake even though we had a major one (you will need to scroll down to see some pictures of the damage) when he was little. So I thought this would be a good time to do a mini-study on earthquakes since it just happened. First of all, we will be doing an earthquake lapbook that you can get free from Homeschool Share. There are also some lapbook components on earthquakes in the Volcano Lapbook at Homeschool Share. We are also going to use the following books...
Here are some animations of vocabulary related to earthquakes.
I will try to keep you posted on the unit as it progresses!
