San Andreas

Last week I spent some time watching the film: San Andreas as part of the end of year work that we offered.
I watched the film through, to find some useful sections, and also some sections to bleep out as there's one or two fruity words peppered in there...
Reading an article by an earthquake engineer, who talks about the issues with the film. I've turned these into a worksheet where students are asked to spot the issues as they watch the film, and also to consider whether it matters that the film isn't completely accurate, as it's just a piece of entertainment.
There was also some useful guidance from Paul Berry on his Devon Geography blog back in the day.

Which films are you planning to show next week in the final week of term?
