I am grateful to report that we are all fine after the recent spate of earthquakes. In fact, the only reason I knew for certain that an earthquake had occurred was the hanging plant in the living room swung a bit (hence, the choice of clip art today). Otherwise, I would have thought, "Was that an earthquake? Or did a big truck rumble down the street?"
I am always eagerly on the lookout for teaching moments, so the youngsters and I had another discussion about what to do during and after an earthquake and investigated the earthquake using online sources. We listened, as well, to a report that related the big concern about the recent quakes: they are near a dormant volcano.
Thanks to everyone for her concern.
