created by Earthquakes, volcanoes
Use either books or the Internet links on this page to look for good facts, quotations, examples, and images associated with either Volcanoes or Earthquakes or Tsunamis and your focus questions. You must be able to justify why you have included a particular item in your collection. Imagine that you have been on a study tour and that your items are souvenirs or other aids that you will use to teach people about what you have learned! What's collected will be displayed and discussed in class and will form the basis of later assignment work.
Keep this question in mind as you work:
(Answer for either Earthquakes or Volcanoes or Tsunamis)
What happens when an Earthquake/ volcano/ tsunami occurs? How does this affect people and property?
Are all people on the earth equally affected by earthquakes/ volcanoes/ tsunamis? Why or why not?
- Explore the Internet sites linked below. You're looking for facts, quotes, examples, images, sound clips, videos, and animations that you think are important aspects of the topic.
- When you find something you like, check its Web page for a copyright notice. Often, students are encouraged to copy things that will only be used in the classroom. Sometimes people don't want their work copied at all. A good practice is looking for an e-mail link on the page and then using it to ask permission.
- Copy any text you want by dragging across the words, then using the Edit - Copy command on the menubar. Paste what you highlighted into a basic text editor, word processor, desktop publishing program or multimedia program.
- Save images you like by downloading them. Paste the images you've downloaded into a multimedia, paint or desktop publishing program (like HyperStudio, Clarisworks, or PageMaker) or use one of the graphics viewers listed as Tools on this page to display your collection of images.
- Be prepared to cut anything that copyright owners tell you they don't want you to have.
- Once you have collected your information, go over it carefully so that you can give clear and thoughtful reasons why you found the things you collected especially important.
