Create An Earthquake/Tsunami Safe-House - posted from Bremerton, WA

For this activity, you will need materials such as cardboard, popsicle sticks, foil, tape, ect. or things you can find around the house to create a miniature house. When you build it, make sure it has a structure like a real house, requiring a roof and walls. You may decorate it if you like.

Once you have buit your house, draw or take a picture of it, then smash it around, throw rocks at it, run it under/in water and see if it floats or gets wet inside. Do whatever you think what would happen to a house in an earthquake.

When you are out of destruction ideas, draw a picture in your journal or take a picture to see the difference from what it looked like at the beginning.
