Earthquake and Volcanoes Quiz

We will be having a short quiz Friday that covers what we have learned about Earthquakes and Volcanoes.

The main questions that the quiz will be based on are:

  • What are the different types of volcanoes and how are they formed?
  • Where are volcanoes formed? And how is this related to tectonic plate boundaries?
  • How is the magnitude of an earthquake measured?
  • Where do earthquakes occur? And how is this related to Plate Tectonics boundaries?
  • How can scientists calculate where an earthquake epicenter is located?
