Earthquakes, a scientific and
physical phenomenon, affect our lives in many ways. In this project,
students use real-time global earthquake data from the Internet to
explore the relationship between earthquakes and plate tectonics.
Through first-hand data analysis,
students will be able to determine if there is any pattern to
earthquake events and speculate on the causes of earthquakes.
This RWLO intended to be used as an opening exercise to a unit
of study on earthquakes.
