Teach Your Children About Shake, Rattle and Roll...
Submitted By Kimbookai Children's Museum
Not the Elvis Presley song, but the earthquake variety of shake, rattle and roll.
National Earthquake Preparedness Month in April is an excellent time to inform your children and remind yourself as well about the California phenomenon of earthquakes and how to prepare for them.
Kimbookai Children's Museum has teamed up with the Math/Science Nucleus, the US Geological Survey and the City of Fremont to create a delightful, hands-on, fun experience on the important subject of quakes for children and their parents.
Children from four-years-old to ten-years-old will be able to build houses of blocks and see them tumble down; play earthquake games; color informative pages on temblors; see a San Francisco Bay Area fault map; pick out things they should take in case of an earthquake emergency; see a simulated quake in action; and much more.
Parents and adults will be able to bring home a wealth of information on how best to prepare for earthquakes and enjoy some interesting exhibits, including the "Faulted Floor" exhibit which has a real moving earthquake fault! The US Geological Survey called our own Hayward Fault the most likely to be the source of the Bay Area's next big quake with a one-in-three chance of a magnitude 6.7 rupture in the next 30 years. The admonition "Be Prepared" has never been so important.
