Here is a song I created to help my 6th grade students study. I hope you enjoy.

It's an earthquake
It's an earthquake

It's an earthquake
Yeah, way down in the crust
When the rock is hot
Stress is building up
It's an earthquake
How do the plates move, change, and mold?

It's an earthquake
Stresses, compression, squeeze
Tension is pulling, see
Side to side is shearing
It's an earthquake
Yeah, rock can bend, stretch, break, and fold

If stress builds up then
There is a fault now
If there's compression
Reverse fault how
Pulling occurs
Normal will appear
If rock will slide on
A strike slip shears

Pulling, push, or slide
Focus deep inside
Epicenter up high
Yeah, the moving plates go by

It's an earthquake
The first wave will be P
Compress expanding see
S-wave secondary
It's an earthquake
They're moving side to side, oh well, oh

It's an earthquake
Yeah, when they reach the top
The waves transform a lot
Seems like it never stops
Becomes surface
Buildings are over now the end

If stress builds up then
There is a fault now
If there's compression
Reverse fault how
Pulling occurs
Normal will appear
If rock will slide on
A strike slip shears

Pulling, push, or slide (changes volume and shape too)
Focus deep inside
Epicenter up high (yeah, most damage you know)
Yeah, the moving plates go by

It's an earthquake
Feel the rumbling
Building crumbling
It's an earthquake
You're trying to hold on
It's an earthquake
Richter scale for size
Seismograph goes high
It's an earthquake
Mercalli effects on structures and more

It's an earthquake
It's an earthquake

Yeah, they will pull or push or slide (changes volume and shape too)
Focus deep inside
You know the epicenter is up high (yeah, most damage you know)
Yeah, the moving plates go by

It's an earthquake
It's an earthquake
It's an earthquake
It's an earthquake
It's an earthquake
