Shake, Rattle & Roll Earthquake Board

WARD470039-398 WARD470016-770
This wave maker earthquake board and kit makes seismic waves in the classroom.

  • Teacher-Developed and Tested
  • Reusable
  • For Grades Six through Nine
  • Teacher's Guide Included
  • Board Makes Seismic Waves in the Classroom
The first part of this complete unit describes how to use a Slinky® spring to demonstrate four types of seismic waves: primary, secondary, Raleigh, and L-waves. Students then place their Towering Toothpick structures onto the board and create “quakes” of gradually increasing magnitude to test the durability of their designs. Teacher Ric Parlier developed this board.

Base isolators are developed by engineers as life and property-saving devices for earthquake-prone regions to make structures less rigid when an earthquake hits. This new and improved base isolator is now reusable and features Velcro®. This board accompanies the new Shake, Rattle, and Roll Earthquake Board and also works with the original model. The board is for grades six through nine.

Ordering information: This kit includes assembled wave maker, Slinky spring, materials (plywood, springs, and screws) to build a single base isolator, a teacher’s guide including lesson plans, and background information.
