Earthquakes, a scientific and physical phenomenon, affect our lives in many ways. In this project, students use Real-Time earthquake and volcano data from the Internet to explore the relationship between earthquakes, plate tectonics, and volcanoes.
- Use Real-Time data to solve a problem.
- Study the correlation between earthquakes and tectonic plates.
- Determine whether or not there is a relationship between volcanoes and plate boundaries.
Musical Plates is recommended for upper elementary, middle school and high school students (ages 11-18).
