A Whole Lot of Shakin' Goin' On!

This A Whole Lot of Shakin' Goin' On! lesson plan also includes:

Pupils gather data about the 1906 and 1989 earthquakes, make comparisons between the two, and determine the factors that influence the amount of shaking that occurs in an area due to an earthquake. They identify that the distance is measured both horizontally and vertically and that soft rocks amplify shaking, while locations on hard bedrock shake less.
