In this unit, students will explore forces and learn about Earth's plates and how they cause earthquakes. Students will create 3-D shapes that will serve as parts of their earthquake resistant structure in the engineering challenge. They will understand how math skills relate to the phenomena of earthquakes and how it can be used in the real world. Students complete the entire engineering design process using the provided engineering booklet, concluding with testing their structures during an "earthquake"!
ALL lesson plans, activities, and teacher resources included with the exception of engineering challenge materials.
