Whose Fault Is It?
In this seismic simulation, learners play a "who-dunnit" game to explore earthquakes. Learners act as the source, carriers, and detectors of earthquake waves, while the group determines who the secret starter of an earthquake is by applying some basic principles of seismology. Learners are introduced to the concept of a seismic wave lag and use data from the activity to create a seismic wave travel-time graph. This activity can be adapted for...Show More
