Earthquakes and Volcanoes

Become a natural-hazard mapper! Your young scientists discuss plate tectonics, map regions of the US where earthquakes are likely to occur, and explore a population density map. Do people avoid living in areas where earthquakes are common? This plan includes several inks to additional sources. There's even a site where your learners can create their own tornado! They'll be thrilled to play around with this game!
