Locating the Earth’s shadow zone

The lesson involves modelling observations that scientists made when analysing earthquake waves and their movement through the interior of the Earth; and then interpreting the information to propose the internal structure of the Earth.

This activity is suitable for students in Stage 4 to model the enquiring nature of scientists using a set of observations.
