Mrs. Cynthia Loreen's class recently finished a science unit on earthquakes. To help them better understand how earthquakes work, the students got to demonstate four different kinds of earthquakes on cakes. The students divided into groups and decorated their cake like either a city, mountain, farm, or island. Mrs. Loreen then showed them what would happen to each cake if there was a certain earthquake. The students really enjoyed the experience but the best part was they got to eat the cakes!
