A highly informative site about the forces that change the earth, such as volcanoes, earthquakes and tsunamis. 

While some of the reading is long with small text and heavy vocabulary, much of it is readable fur upper elementary students.  The site also includes photographs, animations, diagrams and videos to help illustrate exactly how phenomena like earthquakes occur.  It is well laid-out and easy to navigate.  This would be a great place to send upper elementary students for science reports as part of their research, or teachers looking for visuals to supplement class instruction.
