- Classroom Activities
Pupils prepare a scientific report about earthquakes, a topic studied in science or geography. The activity creates a cross-curricular link between the sciences and arts. Pupils can: relate their existing knowledge about earthquakes to historis paintings of the results of earthquakes; look carefully at a painting to notice fine details; reprt scientifically using scientific language; realise that in the past people didn't know how to explain earthquakes and so myths about their origins arose; and work together in a group to produce one report.
