Teachable Moment from IRIS - Magnitude 7.7 Earthquake in Pakistan
IRIS does an excellent job collecting and preparing resources we can use in our classrooms on recent, significant earthquakes. Check out their PowerPoint, visualizations and animations on this powerful earthquake (M7.7) that has killed at least 208 people in Pakistan's remote south-west province. Many houses were flattened and thousands of people have spent the night in the open.
