Abstract: Resources for teachers and administrators desiring to start an earthquake education program or teach a more detailed lesson on earthquakes, volcanoes, tsunamis, and plate tectonics are presented. Curricula, software, and supplemental informational material lists are provided with bibliographies of related books and articles for grades K-9 and parents and teachers. Bibliographic citations include reading levels and length of books whenever possible. On May 26, 1988, the National Center for Earthquake Engineering Research initiated an education project whose focus was on earthquake education in school programs for K-12. From the start of this project, copies of and information about earthquake education curricula, related software, and supplemental informational materials and books were collected and compiled. As this compilation progressed, it became clear that there was a great deal of interest in a publication listing such materials. The result was the NCEER Interim Bibliography of Earthquake Education Materials which was printed in March, 1989. Interest in this type of publication has continued, leading to this expanded, fourth edition.
