With the earthquakes this year, I’ve had quite a few questions from the children in my life that wanted to know how they happen and why they happen. So in response to that I thought maybe I could find some answers online. In the course of research with my little munchkins, we found this site.
What the site does is provide puzzles, animations, games, interesting facts and combine them with scientific explanations, earthquake history, and news to help explain to them all about earthquakes.
In particular I loved Earthquake ABC’s. It’s a children’s book of earthquake feelings and facts, and you can view the whole thing online. Just click Earthquake ABC’s, and then click the animated ABC image to open up the story. It opens in its own window, and then you use the alphabetical navigation or the story navigation to click through it. For example: A is for aftershock and afraid.
More and more today children are aware of what is happening on a global level. So when natural disasters occur they may get scared and worry that it will happen to them – this site helps them understand what earthquakes are all about. Check it out today!
