EARTHQUAKE RESISTANT HOMES

In this sixth grade science unit, students will  explore concepts of architecture, engineering, and design in relation to cities, city planning, requirements and preparations needed for a city to function, and natural disasters, specifically earthquakes. Students will engage in the engineering design process to explore real world engineering problems and develop potential solutions to these problems.As a culminating project, students will design an earthquake resistant architectural structure taking into account concepts such as magnitude and Richter Scale.
