This activity is the first in a two part sequence designed to increase students' understandings about earthquakes. It will address the following questions: What is an earthquake?; What is the role of a model in science?; and How are scientific ideas constantly changing? The activity involves the construction of a model ('The Earthquake Machine') that allows students to explore stick-slip behavior of some faults. Teacher background material, references, standards alignments, and a zipped file containing a slide demonstration of the Earthquake Machine and supporting animations are provided.
