The sixth graders at Assumption School visited the California Academy of Sciences.
Assumption’s 6th grade class is conducting a service project at school to educate families and the community about being prepared for a major earthquake.
They are learning about earthquakes and other natural disasters and how they affect people’s lives. They will assist with Assumption’s Disaster Drill, build models of shake tables and evaluate how different structures stand up to earthquakes.
Next, they will create public service announcements about how to prepare for an earthquake, and hold meetings with their own families to come up with an earthquake plan.
They also visited the California Academy of Sciences to learn more about earthquakes.
