Earthquake Proof Houses and Weathering and Erosion
Students began the unit learning about how earthquakes are created and how they can change the Earth's surface. Students then used their knowledge to design, and test earthquake proof buildings. To culminate the unit on earthquakes, volcanoes, and tsunamis, the students created slideshows using the Google Classroom.
This then led into learning how weathering, erosion and deposition also lead the changes to our earth surface over longer periods of time. This was accomplished through various experiments including the weathering of rocks from water and wind.
