Mr. Ochoa 6 th grade teacher Mountain View Middle School

Objective: Today you will learn about the Earth's crust, faults, and plate movement. Starter: What do you know about Earthquakes? K (what you Know)W (What you want to learn) L (What you learned) Some earthquakes are stronger than others It can occur when 2 plates collide The epicenter of the earthquake has the most force Do they move the entire Earth? How do earthquakes spread? Are they useful?

Objective: Today you will learn about the Earth's crust, faults, and plate movement. Starter: What do you know about Earthquakes? K (what you Know)W (What you want to learn)L (What you learned) Two plates move then they occur The ground shakes Cause damage Can create tsunamis How do earthquakes create tsunami’s Why do they occur Where do they mostly occur?

Objective: Today you will learn about the Earth's crust, faults, and plate movement. Starter: Where is the San Andres Fault? Why is it important?

Objective: Today you will learn about the Earth's crust, faults, and plate movement. Starter: What is the biggest earthquake recorded since 1900? Where was it? How do seismologist know where to check for earthquake activity?

What have been your experiences with earthquakes?

A force that acts on an area of rock to change its shape or volume.

A type of stress that pulls on the crust. A type of stress that squeezes rock until it folds or breaks A type of stress that pushes a mass of rock in two opposite directions.

Tension in Earth’s crust pulls rock apart. The fault is at an angle. The block above the normal fault The block below the normal fault.

The blocks move in the opposite direction.

The rocks on either side of the fault slip past each other side ways.

A large area of flat land elevated high above sea level.

Objective: Today you will learn about earthquakes and how they are measured. Starter: What are the three different types of faults and which way do they move?

What kinds of waves have you observed? How do waves move in water?

The shaking that results from the sudden movement of rock along a fault.

The area beneath Earth’s surface where rock that is under stress breaks, triggering an earthquake. The point of the surface directly above the focus

Seismic waves that compress and expand the ground like an accordion. Seismic waves that vibrate from side to side as well as up and down.

Seismic waves that move more slowly than P and S waves; they produce severe ground movements.

A scale that determines the intensity or strength of an earthquake in a certain place.

A number that geologists assign to an earthquake based on the earthquakes size. Assigns a magnitude number to an earthquake based on the seismic waves.

A device that measures seismic waves.

A rating system that estimates the total energy released by an earthquake.

Objective: Today you will learn about how earthquakes are monitored. Starter: How do geologists determine where earthquakes occurred? What is the device below and what is it used for?

Why is it important for scientists to develop ways to predict earthquakes? Do you think earthquakes will ever be predicted accurately?

The force that opposes the motion of one surface as it moves across another surface.

What kind of structures have you seen that make buildings, bridges, or highways stronger? Do you think these structures will help during an earthquake?

Occurs when an earthquakes violent shaking suddenly turns loose soft soil into liquid mud.

Occurs after a large earthquake in the same area. They may strike hours, days or even months later.

A large wave that may be caused by an earthquake.

Is designed to reduce the amount of energy that reaches the building during an earthquake.
