Interconnecting facts about plate tectonics, faults, and shock waves introduce readers to the study of earth science and explain the causes, effects, and occurrence of earthquakes around the world. Sidebars highlight special vocabulary words, and "Compare and Contrast" and "Think About It" sidebars ask questions to stimulate thinking and discussion skills. This introduction to earthquake science supports Common Core Science Standards, evaluation of evidence, understanding scientific theories, and connecting and relating knowledge.
