Earthquakes

Students inspect the causes and effects of earthquakes and examine how seismic waves travel. In this earthquake activity, students determine where earthquakes happen and why, before determining how to build an earthquake resistant building. They watch a video and discuss fault lines. They simulate the construction by making a building out of toothpicks and gum drops.
