We have thoroughly enjoyed learning about earthquakes and volcanoes for our topic ‘Active Planet’.
We designed, made and evaluated earthquake proof buildings. Our buildings had to be designed to withstand 10 seconds on the ‘shake table’. We considered materials, the height and base of the structure. We looked at some of the best designed earthquake proof buildings in the world to help us too. Whilst we were working we took part in an earthquake drill and had to take safety under the tables whilst the siren was blaring!
