Earthquake-proof Buildings

P4/5 have been learning about the effects of earthquakes and the devastation they cause when buildings collapse.  They looked at different ways of making buildings stronger and more able to withstand an earthquake.  Everyone came up with their own design and then groups chose one design or a combination of features from two designs to build their model.  The groups presented their buildings to the class and then we tested them in a tray of jelly to see if they would still stand up.
