#### Earthquakes Living Lab: FAQs about P Waves, S Waves and More

Using the Internet, pupils research what causes earthquakes, how scientists measure them, their locations, and their effects.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Earthquakes Living Lab: Locating Earthquakes

Pairs research current earthquakes to see if there are any patterns. They determine the mean, median, and mode of the earthquake data, along with the maximum and minimum. Using that information, they make earthquake predictions for a year.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Earthquakes Living Lab: Finding Epicenters & Measuring Magnitudes

Pairs use an online simulation to determine the epicenter and magnitude of an earthquake. Using actual data about the earthquake's maximum S wave amplitudes, they then determine the magnitude.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### A Community Powered by Renewable Energy

Renewable energy is the focus of a seven-part environmental science unit for middle and high schoolers. Lessons challenge students to look closely at the type of energy they consume in their home, examine the regulations and limitations...
