Chance has it that I had this activity in store when the earthquake in Japan hit.
We are all kind of in a shock after watching the pictures of the devastating effects of the worst-ever earthquake in Japan.
This three-minute National Geograpic video will help us understand the way tsunamis form and why they have such damaging effects.
No activity this time. Watch the clip and try to understand as much as possible. Then check whatever you understood against the transcript here.
As a follow-up try to explain tsunamis in your own words, without reading the transcript.
