All about earthquakes....make a quake

Take your students through TLC Earthquakes.

A great site that is broken down into several sections:

- Make-A-Quake: earthquake simulator. Students simulate different earthquake situations to see what will happen to the structure of a high rise building.

- As The World Churns: a flash simulation that shows how the world has split and the how the continents have gone their separate ways.

- Gallery of Devastation: view images and information on recent quakes from around the world.

- Tremor Tech: looks at how technology helps to predict where and when quakes will occur.

- Seismic Links: Further resources and links on seismic activity.
