Earthquake Country - Los Angeles Online Kit
The lesson plans in this kit range from plate tectonics, seismic waves, and earthquake predictability to creating an earthquake preparedness plan. They are designed for grades 5-8 but can be adapted for grades 9-12. Each lesson can be completed in one or two 45 minute class periods.
The last lesson, Earthquake Preparedness, may require more than two class periods to allow time for all students to share their earthquake preparedness plan with the class.
Recognizing that science educators must align their lessons with academic content standards, each lesson is aligned with the California Science Content Standards. For a list of the California Science Content Standards click here.
Material from the Putting Down Roots in Earthquake Country handbook may be incorporated into the lessons above at any time. To request a free class set of Putting Down Roots in Earthquake Country, click here.
