The students have just finished the unit on earthquakes. The students have put on their engineer hats and built their own skyscrapers to see if their blueprint could withstand an earthquake.
The students learned firsthand about the devastation earthquakes cause all over the world. The students learned all about vocabulary associated with earthquakes. The students had to abide by the classroom building codes for their skyscrapers. The students rolled everything they learned about earthquakes and built their towers to withstand earthquakes.
Be prepared here comes the Iannone Quake. On the Richter Scale I think this one measured 7.2. This structure unfortunately did not survive the quake.
The building that would not fall under any circumstances. This group of students have a bright future as engineers.
The creation from Djordje, Stefan, and Javi.
Over 20,000 toothpicks in this skyline. In the comments write what ones you think survived...
