One of my favorite go to sites with an instant list of websites about contemporary events is Larry Ferlazzo’s Websites of the Day.
Yesterday, he listed The Best Sites To Learn About The Christchurch Earthquake.
The book database at Linda’s Links to Literature has teaching resources related to books about earthquakes.
A few of the nonfiction earthquake books:
Changing Earth Beck Olien
