Teaching Earthquake hazards - Using Jello and Rice Crispy Treats

I wanted to teach my students about earthquake hazards and I always mention how unconsolidated sediment acts like Jello in an earthquake. Well I figured I would show them this time. Below is a video I made demonstrating this. Hopefully I will get time to write it up a little better but for now I think it is pretty self explanatory.
