Resource Type:Classroom Activities; Curricula and Instruction
Grade Level:
5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12
Language:English
Organization:Earth Learning Idea (ELI)
Summary:Pupils prepare a scientific report about earthquakes, a topic studied in science or geography. The activity creates a cross-curricular link between the sciences and arts. Pupils can: relate their existing knowledge about earthquakes to historis paintings of the results of earthquakes; look carefully at a painting to notice fine details; reprt scientifically using scientific language; realise that in the past people didn't know how to explain earthquakes and so myths about their origins arose; and work together in a group to produce one report.
Earth Science Big Ideas:Big Idea 1; Big Idea 3; Big Idea 8
NGSS Discplinary Core Ideas:ESS2.B; ESS3.B
NGSS Performance Expectations:HS-ESS2-1; HS-ESS3-1; MS-ESS3-2
NGSS Science and Engineering Practices:Analyzing and interpreting data; Constructing explanations (for science) and designing solutions (for engineering); Developing and using models
NGSS Crosscutting Concepts:Cause and effect: Mechanism and explanation; Patterns; Stability and change
