Background for Teachers Expect problems. You're bound to run into technical difficulty. Always test equipment ahead of time, and for those times when it fails, be sure to have a back–up plan. Intended Learning Outcomes students know what an earthquake is, but they should know how earthquakes occur. To be authentic scientists and know how to answer the question of why does the earth shake? Extensions We can watch another video with more advanced content and information. Assessment Plan 1. We have to see the prior knowledge students know about earthquakes. 2. First we will ask 2 students what earthquakes are for them? 3. Then will they share with their classmates what earthquakes are to them? 2. We will present the question that we want you to answer: why do earthquakes form? 3 we will see the video that we have found in e-media so that they expand their knowledge and know how to answer the question. 4. we are pausing the video to Check for comprehension and Request inferences and predictions. 5. At the end of the video we will make a drawing of how earthquakes form, adding details. 6. Other fun activity is when learn we play this song from Soundzabound and we need to simulated we are an earthquake. 7. They have to observe the earthquakes that pass around the ring of fire and create a graph with numbers and write their conclusions in their digital journal.
