Description

How do volcanoes, earthquakes and landslides impact Earth’s surface? Students explore images that show the aftermath of volcanoes, landslides and earthquakes. Then they use models to further investigate these geological processes. Students are challenged to describe a strength and weakness of each model.

Students Will

  • make observations of images that show the aftermath of volcanoes, landslides and earthquakes and use models to explore these phenomena further.
  • use an earthquake model to investigate how energy from an earthquake travels through Earth’s crust and impacts the natural and built environments.
  • observe three models designed to show a volcanic eruption and analyze each model to determine which one best models a volcano.
  • observe the impact of landslides.
