This site discusses the aftermath of the South Asia earthquake in 2011. There is an extremely unique and detailed Flash interactive that details what an earthquake is and how/why they occur. If you do not have the time to check out this entire site, at least visit the earthquake interactive Flash project - awesomely done! This site also provides pictures, web chats, quizzes, and a wealth of information.

In the Classroom

If you are teaching a unit on weather and earthquakes, be sure to use an interactive whiteboard or projector and utilize the awesome interactive FLASH presentation! After students have read about this earthquake, have them research the largest earthquakes in Japan and Chile and make comparisons to this one. Using map resources on this site, have students establish where this occurred in comparison to where Japan and Chile are located. Have students use an online tool such as Interactive Two Circle Venn Diagram, reviewed here, to make their comparisons.
