Exciting Science Vocabulary

Overview

This resource is a Science student activity that utilizes Utah's Online Library resources - specifically, EBSCO’s Explora Elementary and Middle School - to help students learn about exciting science vocabulary. 

About Utah’s Online Library

Utah's Online Library provides Utah educators and students free access to high-quality reference collections such as EBSCO, Gale Reference Collection, World Book, eMedia, and LearningExpress Library.

This activity was designed to help educators utilize this amazing resource in their classrooms.

Note: Utah educators and students visiting Utah's Online Library from a school computer should be automatically authenticated. When at home, students must use the home access login that their teacher or school media specialist can provide. Utah educators can use either their my.uen login or the home access login.

Activity

What is a seiche? (It’s pronounced saysh). What does a seiche have to do with earthquakes?  How can a seiche occur in your backyard swimming pool, in the ocean, in a lake, and even in a glass of water?

No need for Google. Students can find the answer to this and other mysterious science vocabulary terms in Utah's Online Library's databases. EBSCO’s Explora Elementary and Middle Schools will tell them everything they always wanted to know about a seiche.
