I thought it was a great lesson for your students. The hands experiences by using the earthquake machine and toy car to provide evidence on how different materials will perform. The different options on how the student can present the learned material are also a good idea.

I like the fact that the lesson is diverse, it includes multiple learning strategies. I like that technology is being used in the lesson. Maybe you could add resources to a class website or on a wiki. There seems to be a lot of media that could be available for students outside of the classroom.
