Using basic building materials, students design and build a three-story, earthquake resistance structure.
- Materials for 15 groups
- Teacher-Developed and Tested
- Students Apply Geology Knowledge to Solve a Real-World Problem
In an optional extension activity, they can also design and build a base isolator.
The teacher-designed activity comes with instructions and enough materials for 15 setups.
To further their learning, students can test whether their structure can withstand an earthquake with the Shake, Rattle, and Roll Earthquake Board Activity Set, available separately.
