Sixth graders are studying earthquakes in science and today in our lab they had to design and build a building out of marshmallows and toothpicks on a base of jello.  They had to transport it to our earthquake table and the buildings had to withstand a “Mr. Merkord Earthquake”.  This year the buildings withstood the earthquake for quite some time…the intensity increased and they began to fall all except…the building designed by…Haley, Kai, Chris, Andrew and Rocky.  Congratulations!
