Jell-O Quakes Test Building Skills at Summit Christian Academy

On an early Friday morning, the 3rd and 4th graders at Summit Christian Academy gathered to test their earthquake-safe building skills. Using Jell-O as their base (earth) inside a baking pan, they assembled their toothpicks and marshmallows to create 6” tall structures and then put them to the earthquake test! Test 1: A drop test. Test 2: A shake test. Students were then asked why they felt their structures were or weren’t earthquake safe. Their teacher Mrs. Cindy McCaw came up with this creative and delicious way for students to enjoy learning about the importance of building earthquake-safe structures. This really hit home for the kids since many experienced their first-ever earthquake, a magnitude 5.7, in mid-March. After the tests were completed, students got to eat their extra marshmallows. Yum!
