This is a great way to kick off your Earth Sciences Unit! Make up FUNDough before classes and students create their own MODELS of the Inside of the Earth! Students are required to PLAN by drawing and labeling their MODEL first on the LAB SHEET, and then, make sure the MODEL fits on TOP of an Index Card. This limits the size and amount of FUNDough used, and smaller models are easier to display! You'll want to display them for all to see how engaging and self-directed your classroom is! The LAB follows the Scientific Method (ALWAYS) and provokes HIGH-Order-Thinking with its CONCLUSION questions. My LAB includes the recipe and Teacher Instructions and Helpful Hints. Science Rocks with Smalley! and YOU will ROCK, too--when you do this awesome LAB!
