I model with my students how to plot the earthquake data (showing them the latitude and longitude) on the world map then we spend 1 week plotting the data from the USGS Spreadsheet Format website each day.  Usually 1 week is all it takes to show where plate boundaries are based on these earthquakes. talk about why we only record the 4.5 or 2.5 or greater earthquakes and not the data for 1.0 or greater.

The U.S. Geological Survey website provides students with information about earthquakes. They can learn about the latest quakes, watch animations, get ideas for science fairs or play earthquake-related puzzles and games.

Google puts earthquake data directly in search results For anyone who has had the pleasure of waking up to a rumbling apartment building only to Google the USGS Earthquake map the search giant is now saving you another click in your search results. Starting today a Google search for earthquake or earthquake near me will put that same US Geological Survey data right in your search results.  An earthquake search will bring up fairly rich results with a map of recent seismic activity and data…
