On Friday, February 27, we will take our third quiz this quarter on earthquakes. If you are not happy with your score, you may retake this quiz before Thursday, March 5. Study guide attached below:
The official school Firm Deadline for all missing and incomplete work is Thursday, February 26 at 3:00 pm. Since I won't have the chance to do any grading Thursday, I will extend the Firm Deadline for my classes only to the next day, Friday, February 27 at 3:00 pm.
No late, missing, or incomplete work will be accepted after Friday. All quiz retakes must be done by Friday as well.
Read the article on earthquake safety (from the California "ShakeOut" program) and then answer the questions in your class notebook. Use complete sentences.
Use the geologic cross-section map to answer the questions in your class notebook. Use complete sentences.
Working in teams of three, you will create a brochure detailing an Emergency Action Plan (EAP) for Nampa in the event of an earthquake. This project is due Friday, Feb 27, for full credit, or by Thursday, March 5, for a max grade of "C". Please be sure to read and follow the instructions below carefully.
Complete the attached worksheet and glue it into your science notebook. Make sure I can see both the front and the back of the worksheet so I can give you a grade.
Copy the chart on page 1 of the handout into your class notebook, and place your answers to #1-4 in the chart. Using your Richter Scale Chart from yesterday's assignment, give me a complete sentence answer for #5.
