Description:

In this experiment, learners design and build a model room in a shoebox and furnish it with tiny furniture. Then, learners put the room on a simple earthquake simulator to see what happens to the room during an "earthquake." Learners are encouraged to redesign their rooms to make them earthquake-resistant. The earthquake simulator is a piece of cardboard suspended by rubber bands from a copy paper box lid. The lesson plan includes basic information about types of earthquakes, different measurement scales, and ways to prepare for an earthquake.
