    Grade 7 – GIS Lesson 2: “The Earth Moves”
    Students will observe patterns of earthquake and volcanic activity on the earth’s surface and the relationship of those patterns to the location of diverse landforms, plate boundaries, and the distribution of population. Based on their exploration of these relationships, students will form a hypothesis about the earth’s distribution of earthquake and volcanic activity and identify world cities that face the greatest risk from those phenomena.
