Help your students learn about earthquakes through this engaging, hands-on science experiment! Students will understand the effects of earthquakes with this activity!
Japan 9.0 earthquake ( Tohoku-chiho Taiheiyo-oki ) on March 11, 2011 held the secrets of another 'significant' "moment of magnitude" ( Mw ) Earth Event where parallel to Japan's eastcoast deep beneath the Western Pacific Ocean an entire suboceanic mountain range was splitting in-half ( south to north ) 310-miles long and splitting open 100-feet wide ( east to west ) that the public wasn't told about.

Students spend considerable time learning all about rock deformation, faults, folds, earthquakes, seismic waves, and much more. They then learn about earthquake design features and build a design with gumdrops and toothpicks for the big quake. Instructions and much more are included. A great lesson bundle for any earth science classroom. -Enjoy! Science from Murf LLC
