Year 3 and the "Rock-olate" Factory
Posted by Ms S Tough
Today, we learnt about how the three main types of rocks are formed... using chocolate!
First, we made sedimentary rocks by layering up milk and white chocolate crumbs (sediment). We had to press down hard to make a solid rock.
Next, we made metamorphic rock. We had to squeeze the chocolate and use the warmth from our hands to help it change shape. We noticed the patterns and colour changing, too.
After, we made igneous rock. We placed the chocolate container in warm water until it melted into lava. After, the lava cooled down to make igneous rock. Finally we enjoyed tasting our delicious, chocolatey rocks.
We decided to name the activity "Year 3 and the Rock-alate Factory" after recently enjoying stories by Roald Dahl!.
