Year 3 Extreme Earth- Earthquake Launch

To begin our topic ‘Extreme Earth’ where the children will be learning about natural wonders and disasters such as mountains, volcanoes and earthquakes, the children had the task to make design and make a structure that would withstand an earthquake.

They then had fun working as a team making their structures, using cocktail sticks and marshmallows.

Once they had made their structures they had to test them by placing them on a tray of jelly and shaking them for 10 seconds!

Most of their structures made it and amazingly didn’t collapse!
