Natural Hazards-Are You Ready to Shake?

High schoolers investigate what can be done to reduce vulnerability to communities threatened by earthquakes and tsunamis. For this natural hazards lesson plan, students explain the causes of earthquakes and tsunamis and define terms associated with these hazards. They compare and contrast "risk" and "vulnerability" and they describe mitigation activities for earthquakes and tsunamis.

I am a brand new teacher and have felt extremely overwhelmed at times coming up with great activities for my students. Lesson Planet has been a life saver and helped me get through the first few months with a little less stress!
