Grouper Moon 7th Grade Language Arts Worksheets (Age Adaptable)

From Louise Marquering...

I picked up a copy of Grouper Moon at the 2002 NSTA NW convention. In the spring I read it to my seventh grade class and they loved it! The following year I did an integrated unit with Science and Language Arts, since I was teaching a self-contained seventh grade class. My principal did pay for a class set of the books!

The Nisqually Earthquake, February 28, 2001

The location of this earthquake is very near the location of the 1949 magnitude 7.1 earthquake. The February 28, 2001 event occurred on a normal fault within the down-going Juan de Fuca plate. The earthquake name "Nisqually" is derived from a prominent delta in South Puget Sound. The area northeast of the delta (along Puget Sound) is known as Nisqually Landing. The delta is protected as part of the Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge. (Text by USGS)
