Earthquakes: Learn from the Past, Prepare for the Future

This unit uses three lessons to introduce students to the basics of how earthquakes work and why they occur. They will also understand the importance of high-quality construction in earthquake zones, the political aspects of earthquake preparedness and cleanup, and what can be learned from previous earthquakes in order to prepare for future ones. It includes links to online supporting materials and a video (available for purchase), discussion questions, evaluation criteria, extension activities, and suggested readings. Applicable standards (McREL) and an audio vocabulary are also provided.
