We found a fantastic FREE Earthquake Unit Study and Lapbook.
Earthquakes for Kids - A wonderful website filled with educational earthquake information for kids.
Learn how engineers construct buildings to withstand damage from earthquakes by building a structure with toothpicks and marshmallows. Test how earthquake proof their buildings are by testing them on an earthquake simulation in a pan of Jell-O.
Here is a video I found on Youtube, showing the Jell-O experiment. We hope to do it soon.
The Earths outer core was discovered by Beno Gutenberg in 1913. Today the boundary between the mantle and the outer core is known as the Gutenberg discontinuity. The area lies about 1800 mi beneath our feet. He was studying seismic waves traveling through the earth using seismographs stationed around the planet.
We hope you have found something useful and have a fantastic earthquake study!
