  • 1. Find the Ground Shaking Evidence Student Page Title Introduction Task Process Evaluation Conclusion Credits [ Teacher Page ] A WebQuest for 6th Grade (Science) Designed by Allie Wood [email_address] Based on a template from The WebQuest Page
  • 2. Introduction Student Page Title Introduction Task Process Evaluation Conclusion Credits [ Teacher Page ] Ground shaking news! There was just an earthquake that was reported a few towns over from yours. Everyone felt the shake and there are clues that the earthquake left behind. It is your job to identify what went on and to explain the catastrophes that have occurred, helping the people around you to better understand.
  • 3. The Task Student Page Introduction Task Process Evaluation Conclusion Credits [ Teacher Page ] Title There are several destructive paths that the earthquake left behind that you must be able to identify what caused it and be able to explain it. Make sure to bring your field notebook with you in order to record and illustrate your findings. Once you have gained an understanding it is your responsibility to write a short paper that you will be able to post around town. In the paper you need to explain to the towns people your findings in a simple way in which they can understand. Even giving a few examples that they can relate to would help (Hint: Use a slinky to help explain).

  • 7. Conclusion Student Page Title Introduction Task Process Evaluation Conclusion Credits [ Teacher Page ] After completing this lesson you should be able to identify what causes and earthquake and the different types of waves that are involved including what their destructive paths are. You should also be able to identify what makes the ground shake during an earthquake. Would you be able to tell if there was an earthquake under you? Where are earthquakes most likely to happen? Can earthquakes be predicted? Below are some more links to continue your education on the subject. http://www.spreekbeurten.info/earthquakes.html http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/ http://earthquake.usgs.gov/regional/neic/

  • 10. Introduction (Teacher) [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page Evaluation Teacher Script Conclusion This lesson has been developed in order to help students take control of their learning in a fun and creative way. It is designed to put them in the situation to get them more interested and personal with the topic. This lesson is designed to teach students about earthquakes. They will learn about the earthquake remains and what causes them along with other interesting information. It goes about it in a personal way in hopes that the child will take on the role that was given and take the project more personally and seriously.
  • 11. Learners (Teacher) [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page Evaluation Teacher Script Conclusion This lesson is directed at grade level 6 science. It can also be used in other grades. It can also be used in language arts since there is a paper involved. Prior to beginning this lesson the learner will need to know a little bit about earthquakes. They should know or be familiar with s waves and p waves. Other than that they can easily pick up the information from the websites that have been posted to help.
  • 12. Curriculum Standards (Teacher) [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page
    • This lesson should familiarize students more with the processes of an earthquake and what it leaves behind. They should be able to identify what is causing the disaster above the ground by knowing what is going on underneath the surface. This project fit in the lines of:
    • Earth and Space Sciences Standard
      • Demonstrates an understanding of Earth systems and how they interact with the globe.
      • Understands the process that shapes the Earth and Earth’s history

    • Along with Science content this project helps the students develop communication skills when they have to write the paper to the town to explain what happened. They have to learn how to explain complicated material in a simple way that everyone will be able to understand. They had to first had to observe what happens when earthquakes occur and then use a problem-solving technique to figure out what happened by looking up information. Once they had discovered the waves that had caused the destruction they had to compare them and relate them to a slinky.

  • 14. The Process (Teacher) [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page Evaluation Teacher Script Conclusion
    • You will need to be able to describe to the towns people what causes an earthquake.
    • Next you will have to go into town and look for signs of an earthquake, in which you will describe in your paper (ex: fence lines that are no longer connected, new hills that have formed, etc.). Make sure to record and draw at least 4 examples of these in your field notebook.
    • Now that you have found some examples and are becoming familiar with the new terrain describe what caused the changes in the landscape. Describe what caused:
      • the new hills to form
      • the fence to move out of line
    • Also be able to tell the people why they felt the ground shake beneath them.

  • 16. [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page Evaluation Teacher Script Conclusion This lesson was organized in a way that not only the child gets to learn about earthquakes and science material, but at the end of the project they get to bring what they know from language arts in and write a paper. This project should be assigned after the topic of earthquakes has been covered in class. It can be assigned in one day with time in class the next few days for students to ask questions. The students should be allowed about two weeks time to complete the project. If the teacher is willing or has time, class time may also be granted to them to work on their projects. This project is single disciplinary. This lesson is easy enough for a novice teacher. All of the information that the teacher and students need is in the websites that are available in the webquest.

  • 23. Teacher Script (Teacher) [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page Step by step directions for the facilitator: Title: Briefly introduce and outline the project , explaining to the students background and how it connects to what your are doing in class with them. Try to get them excited about the project; be enthusiastic. Introduction: Explain the situation and a brief description of what the student’s responsibility is. They students may ask you lots of questions saying they don’t understand. Tell them to wait until you finish explaining the entire project before asking questions; you will no doubt answer some of their questions in future slide. Task: This section should give the students a little more detail on the project. They will still have questions at this point; wait until you have gotten at least through the process slide to answer any questions. Evaluation Teacher Script Conclusion
  • 24. Process: This should be where the facilitator spends most of the time explaining about the project. In this slide is when most of the student’s questions should be answered about what they have to do for the duration of the project. In this slide the entire project is explained in detail.

  • 25. Evaluation: This slide tells the students what they are going to be graded on. Make sure to tell them that it is in their hands what grade they choose to get, since you are telling them exactly what they need to do to receive each grade. Conclusion: This slide tells the students what they should be able to do and comprehend once they are finished with this project. If they are not able to do so they have most likely not spent enough time on the project. Credits: This is where you show the students all of the web addresses that they are able to use during the project. Make sure to tell them that they are allowed to use these and only these websites, unless checking with you first.

  • 26. Conclusion (Teacher) [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page This is a very good project to have 6 th grade science student’s go through. It helps teach the information in a fun and interesting way. That some students might find boring without. It can help students understand what is going on in the classroom because they get to participate and be evolved in their learning. Getting to do hands on activities on their own helps children take control of their learning. Evaluation Teacher Script Conclusion
