Covers earthquakes occurring at transform plate boundaries, fault zones, and transform faults.
Students plot the locations of faults and then map recent earthquakes in order to see the relationship between earthquakes and faults at plate boundaries.
A list of student-submitted discussion questions for Earthquakes at Transform Plate Boundaries.
To stimulate the critical thinking skills required to assess the validity of statements about the key concept using an Agree/Disagree Table.
To organize ideas, increase comprehension, synthesize learning, demonstrate understanding of key concepts, and reinforce vocabulary using a Quickwrite.
Students will look at an animation of the San Andreas fault unzipping during the 1906 earthquake and predict what the future shape of California will be.
In January 2010 a 7.0 earthquake struck along a strike slip fault that passes through Haiti. Scientists had predicted the right magnitude, but could not know the date.
