This Shake it up with Seismographs! lesson plan also includes:
- Lab & Experiment
- Join to access all included materials
Shake things up in your STEM or earth science classroom when you have small groups construct their own seismographs. A reading assignment on the history of seismographs, the Richter scale, and current technology sets the stage for the engineering design project. A reflection worksheet is also provided for closure. This would be a creative addition to a unit on seismology.
- A thorough lesson, including an anticipatory reading, hands-on activity, and reflection questions
- Meets Next Generation Science Standards in earth science and engineering
- Easily used to address Common Core science standards for scientific literacy
