Te Papa - Earthquakes

While in Wellington we visited Te Papa to learn about earthquakes.  

Earthquakes happen when tectonic plates collide with each other.  We put together a jigsaw that showed the tectonic plates



The Pacific plate is the largest plate


Japan receives the most amount of earthquakes 


Do you know how many earthquakes New Zealand receives a year?
