–Warm Up: Based on the scale you devised yesterday, draw a series of pictures to illustrate the increasing levels of damage by earthquakes of different intensities. Label the drawings with the numerical values and phrases that describe the effects at each level.
–Investigate: Measurement of Earthquake Effects 1-4 all
#4- compare Investigate scales with small groups.
–Reading groups: read pp 244-248; Complete the checking up questions on page 248

–Warm Up: Create one analogies and or pun for each of the ‘geo words’: modified Mercalli scale, resonance, tsunami, liquefaction, Richter scale

–Think About It: What factors would you look at to “measure” the size of an earthquake? What damage do passing earthquake waves cause?

–Warm Up: On you original paper that we started this section (Detecting Earthquake Waves), brainstorm ideas that will answer the following questions: What specific observations would you want to make to study an earthquake? How could you detect and record the arrival of earthquake waves: P waves, S waves, and surface waves?
Then using the ideas that you brainstormed, answer the questions.
Compare your new answer to your first response. Share the response that you wrote today with your shoulder partner.
Partners, point out any inaccurate statements or details that were left out.
