Product Description
STEM Challenge: April brings Earth Day and this challenge is all about an earth topic! It’s an earthquake simulation activity that has students building and shaking!

This challenge is available in a money-saving bundle. This challenge is from my STEM by the Month collection.

In this challenge students will be using materials to design a three story structure that can withstand being shaken in a mild earthquake simulation. The “earth” pan you provide for the simulation uses an easy supply- gelatin! Just prepare the shake pan and then let students add their structures to it. The structures are built using only three materials, must be at least three floors tall, resemble a building (not a tower), and be stable enough to keep standing. Will the buildings survive the mild earthquake?

You will need supplies in addition to this package. This includes:
• Toothpicks- round
• Mini marshmallows
• Cardboard pieces
• Aluminum pans
• Gelatin
• Stopwatch (optional)

The package specifically includes: cover, teacher background, materials and preparation page, 5 pages of teacher directions, a constraints list, 4 pages of photographs, two extra Hints page, student lab sheet with sample answers, a scoring rubric, and the Terms of Use page. All forms are provided in an editable format. The page count listed for this package includes everything.

This challenge will need 1class sessions (1 hours) to complete.

This challenge works great with two more in the Earth Series:
Build a Solar Oven
Build a Water Pipeline
