Teddy wants you to tell him about earthquakes. He doesn't understand what causes them, what seismic waves are, why some quakes are big and others small, what magnitude means, how to respond during an earthquake, or much about tsunamis.

After you have heard Teddy ask you questions about Earthquakes, you'll need to consider what you would want to tell him that you learned from the chapter.

Each student gets to respond ONE TIME to the question. You should write a short paragraph for each of his questions. You need to be convincing and provide at least 20 good details in your response in order to get an "A" on the essay. [NOTE: Extra credit will be given for additional facts!]
