Comment: I have used Virtual Earthquake in my classroom for the past four years and I
have found that the students enjoy working online and completing all of the
tasks to get their very own certificate. The content is appropriate for the
earth science curriculum. I use the activity as a culminating review of finding
epicenters to earthquakes after going over lag time, magnitude, etc. I have
found that the software is very user-friendly.
