Learn About Earthquakes

I’ve always been fascinated by the Richter Scale. It’s amazing how it works.

This week I checked at the U.S. Geological Survey for news about the latest California earthquake. Like a lot of you, we have family and friends who live there. That site has “real time” reporting of recent earthquakes around the world.

There’s more to be learned there than earthquake updates. The science topics range from droughts and volcanoes to energy and minerals. It’s very educational!

Disclaimer: While it’s full of information, be on the lookout for controversial topics such as global warming, evolution, etc. Be willing to discuss these with your children.

Pray for families around the world who have experienced an earthquake.
