Earthquake proof buildings - November 2018

Lesson: Geography

Class: Year 4J Year: 2018 - 2019

CHALLENGE

4J had to make a structure, as large as possible, to withstand the effect of an earthquake.

They had marshmallows, cocktail sticks and a jelly plate to stick them in. The marshmallow and cocktail sticks were to be used for the buildings and the jelly as the ground it is built on.

Look at the pictures and videos to see which groups would make great future architects.
