Product Description
This activity uses chocolate chip cookies to simulate mining for diamonds and worked really well as a review for my students of the earth layers and rock types. Also as a reinforcement lesson on environmental remediation and conservation.

Supplies are simple (per student)
1 cookie
2 toothpicks or paperclips
1 paper plate

Students have 2 rounds to mine
1st round they must use the tools provided
2nd round they must use the already mined cookie but can use tools and or their hands to mine.



Students use the sheet and teacher lead instructions as a guide.
I show a video clip on how diamonds are formed and mined before we start.
I also show a clip on how big some diamond mines are

I finally show a clip on mine recovery and remediation before we start.

All video links are included or you may use you own or none at all.

My 6th graders really enjoyed this, since they got to eat at the end.
