Tsunami: Catching the Ultimate Wave!

Math and science collide in this lesson about tsunamis. Emerging earth scientists calculate how long it takes for a tsunami to hit the coast from the time of the earthquake or landslide that causes the wave to rise. Unit rates and the use of multi-digit numbers are required.

Hi, I was recently hired as a middle school science teacher in Newark, NJ. I received a call on a Friday and was asked to begin the following Monday. As a new teacher, and with only 3 days to prepare, I was really feeling the pressure. The school requires 2 weeks of lesson plans every Sunday, so I began searching the web for help. Thank goodness I found Lesson Planet. I still use the site everyday to form great lessons and activities for the kids.
