The Earthquake - Turning It Into a Teaching Moment

Dear Ladies,

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.

Agape always,
Cynthia
