Tsunami Surge is a project for students in grades 6-12 that uses real-time data sources from the internet to help students answer these questions. They will be challenged to think critically and creatively in their efforts to understand, predict, and guard against this powerful force of nature. Students will learn to describe what a tsunami is and what causes it, explain how tsunamis are different from regular waves in the ocean, determine where tsunamis are most likely to originate, create a plan for a tsunami warning system, and explain how to prepare and protect an area that could be hit by a tsunami. There are many activities and helpful tools for the teachers, like a reference guide and teacher guide.
