Love this! Thanks. I like your lesson style...seems easy to gather supplies and easy to follow. Seems that kids would like the hands-on aspect as well. Will try it with my elementary students when we study Soils. I downloaded your free digestion stomach simulation, too. I wouldn't have found you unless TpT had made the mistake in the newsletter today. So, if anything, a little traffic your way.

A really fantastic idea for livening up rocks!
I would also show what happens if you squash (under pressure) the magma so the colours mix (metamorphic rock)

The second sentence in the directions is written incorrectly ("Today, you'll simulate the it using crayons as rocks") and I can not fix it because it is a pdf. Good thing it was free. I will have to do the old fashion cut and paste to make it usable. :/
On  November 18, 2012Science Teacher Resources answered:
