Part 8/8 Wrapping It Up
In this video we summarize the activity and why we think it's a great addition to any Earth Science classroom.
Tutorial to accompany the Lesson, "Determining and Measuring Earth's Layered Interior"
Learning occurs as students work first in small groups and then as a whole class to compare predicted seismic wave travel times, generated by students from a scaled Earth model, to observed seismic data from a recent earthquakes. This activity uses models, real data and emphasizes the process of science.
