Great ideas for science projects and class projects Dec 14, 1998
I first saw this book on sale at the Liberty Science Center and decided I could use it as a source of ideas to help me teach earthquake science. There are not a great deal of hands-on activities suggested by text books to help students relate to the ideas underpinning earthquake science. This book satisfies a void by suggesting many relevant experiements. I would have loved to receive this book as a gift when I was a student.
