1st Grade Earthquake Study
The first grade students expressed interest in learning more about earthquakes after the one that shook our area on August 23rd. In response to their interest, 1st grade teachers and the library media specialist designed a STEM lesson that allowed students the opportunity to investigate earthquakes, to design a plan for a structure that would withstand an earthquake, to create that structure, and to test the structure in a mock earthquake. Students were able to draw conclusions about building structures based on the results of their experiments.
