The topic of earthquakes came up back in August when we studied skyscrapers, then again in September as part of our disaster preparedness studies. Since we live close to the New Madrid fault line, and the boys were interested, we took a bit of a detour from our regular lessons to focus on learning about earthquakes. As to be expected when the boys pick the topic of study, it was fantastic. Below are the online resources we used as we researched, experimented, and learned about earthquakes.
