Earthquakes– Book Review


A Level 2 Scholastic Science Reader- earthquakes can be the most powerful and dangerous force in nature.

Earthquakes by Deborah Heiligman

In this Level 2 book the reader will learn all about earthquakes. Astonishing photography shows the damage caused by an earthquake.
Most faults are under the surface of the earth, but the San Andreas Fault in California is visible. It is about 600 miles long and moving gradually all the time about 2 inches a year. There are many earthquakes along this fault which is referred to as an earthquake zone.

What is an epicenter? The place on earth directly over the point where the earthquake begins.

What are tectonic plates?the earth’s crust is broken into approximately 30 pieces and these tectonic plates are always moving very slowly.

Check the glossary for these other vocabulary words: aftershock, earthquake zone, fault, focus, magnitude and seismographs.

See photographs of the San Francisco earthquake in 1906, and also in 1989 just as the third games of the World Series between San Francisco Giants and the Oakland A’s.
