It’s time to bring some fun to your classroom during your unit on earthquakes! Your students will love this STEM project where they have to build an earthquake resistant building. There are many ways you can use this project – group lab, individual projects, or a culminating unit activity.
This product contains the student lab manual and teacher materials to conduct this experiment in your classroom. Students must design a structure, test their design, note their observations of their design and their peers' designs, and then create a revised version of their idea. While completing this task students must work cooperatively, think like an engineer, defend their ideas and opinions, and evaluate the success of their design.
This activity is great for enrichment or gifted education also!
