This lesson is designed for KS2 students. It can be taught as a stand alone lesson but is also available as part of two wider units which are available on Teach It Forward:
The presentation looks at three famous earthquakes from the previous decade including Haiti (2010), New Zealand (2011) and Japan (2011).
The activity then challenges students to research an earthquake online (e.g. Simple Wikipedia) and write a fact file about it. A completed fact file about the earthquake in Christchurch in 2011 is included as an example.
Easier – Students research and create a fact file about their chosen earthquake.
Harder – Students research and create a fact file about their chosen earthquake plus insert a map and add photo captions.
