Grades 5-8 Science Standard B:Physical Science Transfer of energy Energy is a property of many substances and is associated with heat, light, electricity, mechanical motion, sound, nuclei, and the nature of a chemical. The formula is: where speed (meters/second) = square root of g (acceleration due to gravity, which is 9.81 meters/second2) x d (water depth in meters) Have students work with a partner. Oceanography: /oceano/waves.htmContains a map of locations for 13 tsunamis.
From Antarctica to Zambia, discover the Earth continent by continent with the Complete Atlas of the World. Key Era Overviews build up a story of the changing world through the centuries, while historical developments are examined continent-by-continent, region by region, complemented by timelines and a detailed glossary. An unsurpassed visual chronology and an invaluable family reference. Tell students that they will use the speed formula to calculate tsunami speed and determine the time each tsunami takes to travel to specific locations in each of the scenarios presented. Download this Printable (PDF) Go, Penguins, Go! Students choose action words to complete sentences about penguins.
Download this Printable (PDF) This Is a Penguin Students read a diagram about emperor penguin adaptations. Science Standard D:Earth and Space Science Structure of the Earth system Lithospheric plates on the scales of continents and oceans constantly move at rates of centimeters per year in response to movements in the mantle.
From early man to the 21st century, the rise and fall of empires, the birth of nations, culture and conflict are all explored in revealing detail. Many things can happen at these sites to trigger a tsunami. At Sumatra, stick-slip friction occurred. Students read to find out about three kinds of penguins.

Includes analysis of actual seismograms from which students plot the earthquake’s epicenter. Tsunamis are not tidal waves (they are not caused by the forces that create tides). An epicenter is the point on Earth’s surface straight above where an earthquake originates. Major geological events, such as earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and mountain building, result from these plate motions. Download this Printable (PDF) Grades K-1: Ends of the Earth Students read about the North and South poles.
New York, NY: DK Publishing, Inc., 1994.Discusses Earth and highlights modern oceanography, plate tectonics, and the formation of the ocean floor. Magnitude does not play a large role in the tsunami’s speed. Clipping is a handy way to collect important slides you want to go back to later. The earthquake’s magnitude also plays a role in how high above sea level the water level rises.
