INTRODUCTION
You and your partner are famous
seismologists. You have been hired to
create a presentation for a third grade
class that would explain where, how and
why earthquakes happen.

TASK
You are to create a presentation that would accurately
explain the where, when, why and how of earthquakes to
elementary school students. All information can be found
within the websites and within your science textbook. The
topics that MUST be addressed are as follows:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
EVALUATION
The different types of plate boundaries
The different types of faults
The different types of seismic waves
The focus and the epicenter
The three scales used for measuring earthquakes
Seismographs and seismograms
You may present your project as a poster, a book, or a
PowerPoint presentation. (If you have other ideas, please
see me before you get started.)
– Since this project is geared toward third graders, you are limited
to no more than 75 words to describe each of the topics. That
allows you enough words to create brief captions for each of the
subtopics. Keep your explanations accurate, but short.
– Be aware of a third grader’s vocabulary when you write your
descriptions. You must include the vocabulary words, but your
explanations need to be in third grade terms.
•
You must create at least one 3-D model. It can be used to
illustrate any one of the six bulleted topics. Your model can
be anything from a pop-up book to a diorama to a clay
model. It does not have to be big in size. Be creative. Use
things that you have around the house!

Take out three pieces of paper and list each of the bulleted topics on
one side of the paper so that you have one topic on each of the six
sides of your paper.
Look up your topics to see how many sub categories there are. For
example… there are 3 different types of plate boundaries. You need
to discuss all of them. Write down the names, then write down
information you discover about them.
Gather information about all the topics.
Sort through your information to write a good, yet short description for
each of your subtopics and topics. Remember that each of the six
bulleted topics can have no more than 75 total words.
Should you make a poster, a book, or a PowerPoint?
Decide how to best present your project. Are you looking for pictures
on the internet or out of magazines? Will you draw your pictures? Will
you type or handwrite your information?
Make sure that all components are neat, spelled correctly,
colored/glued neatly. Overall neatness and visual appeal of your
project counts!
Decide which of the six topics would make the best kind of project for
you. You are only to choose 1.
Create your 3-D model. It needs to be factual and neat.
Write one paragraph to explain what your project is, why you chose to
do that, and show how your project illustrates your topic.
You and your partner will present your total project to the class.
