Earthquake Structure Challenge

This week the class has been exploring the earth forces that influence the structural strength of buildings. The students were given a challenge to create a 4 walled building with a roof that would withstand a significant earthquake. They were partnered up and given freedom to choose their materials. Here are photos of the process and finished products. Tomorrow is the Grade 5 Great Shake Off, so be sure to look for post quake pictures soon.
