Subject: 1906 San Francisco Earthquake/Fire with Primary Sources

Before dawn on April 18, 1906, San Francisco experienced a massive earthquake. Its 
impact was even recorded in Germany, 9100 miles away. Following the quake, a great 
fire raged for days. To remove the rubble of so many ruined buildings, the U.S. 
Army used all available dynamite, creating many explosions in an already devastated 
city. See the actual seismogram (from the German observatory), review US Geological 
Survey graphs (updated hourly) of the most recent quakes (in the U.S. and 
throughout the world) and examine national-archive photographs, film clips and 
eyewitness accounts of the 1906 disaster. With linked animations, students can 
better understand why earthquakes occur - and what makes certain parts of the world 
(including California) so susceptible to them.
