Effects and responses to tectonic activity

This is a 2-part lesson which can be used briefly as a 1 hour lesson or spaced out into a 2 hour lesson.

It offers some activities as a ‘recap’ for example, recalling the types of volcanoes and severity of seismic activity on the Richter scale, so it assumes some prior knowledge. However, it builds on this through sorting information into primary/secondary effects, and local/national/international responses. Intended for KS3 mid to high ability.
