Week Four - Earthquake in Lego City!
This week we talked about structures and stability, and looked at how a strong wall is built, with over- lapping bricks. The children had some great suggestions as to how to make a strong structure that could withstand shaking and falling.
After some work on their creations, the children tested their buildings on the earthquake simulator (a kettle drum kindly loaned from the music room!) and made modifications, learning the best kind of structure to withstand vibrations and falls.
