Imagine you are deeply asleep, when all of the sudden you feel and see everything besides you moving rapidly. Your heartbeat increases and your nerves attack! Earthquake! Indeed, it is one of the most scariest experiences you may experience in a lifetime. An earthquake is a trembling or a shaking movement of the ground, caused by the slippage or rupture of a fault within the Earth's crust. Every year more than 3 million earthquakes take place, most of these unnoticed by humans. In contrast, a severe earthquake is the most catastrophic event of nature which can occur anywhere on the surface of our planet!
Although we still can't predict when an earthquake will happen, we are going to learn much about them so we can prepare ourselves in case we experience one on our island.
So students...drop and cover yourselves because the earthquake alert is ON.
Prepare yourselves to learn more about historical earthquakes and be ready to create a narrative essay about one of them.
But before doing that let's not forget to visit the links below titled 'What is an Earthquake?' and 'Earthquake Power Point Presentation', so you can developing your own ideas about the topic that will serve as our main focus.
