Advanced Teacher Preparation > Seismology: "S minus P" Earthquake Location Method

TXESS Revolution teachers look at a representation of the 30m x 30m outdoor grid in preparation for the activity during PDA3a in 2009.


Advanced Preparation

The presenter/teacher should mark off a square that is 30 meters by 30 meters where students may run and walk without obstacles the day prior to doing the activity with students. We also recommend at least one trial run with volunteers (colleagues) prior to doing the activity with students.
