Earthquake Simulation


The cloth represents two different plates. 

The layer of soil on top of the cloth strips represents the Earth’s crust. 

The cups represent houses and buildings etc. 

Then at the same time, pull one of the overhanging cloth strips towards you and the other away. The ‘fault line’ will be shown and the effects on the Earth’s crust and the houses will be similar to a real earthquake.
