Product Description

What better way to learn the plate boundary interactions of convergent, divergent, and transform but than to model them with FOOD and then EAT THEM?!

The materials needed for each student are:

1) 1 large graham cracker broken in half (2 square graham crackers)

2) 1 Fruit Roll-Up (carefully tear one full-sized fruit roll-up in half- NO Fruit-by-the Foot)

3) 1 sheet of wax paper or piece of white computer paper (to work on)

The materials needed for students to share in small groups of 4 - 6 are:

1) 1 tub of vanilla frosting

2) a cup of water (for dipping to edge of graham cracker)

"Key" to Materials:

graham crackers = tectonic plates = the continental crust, which is thick and less dense

Fruit Roll-Ups = tectonic plates = the oceanic crust, which is thin and dense

vanilla frosting = asthenosphere = the viscous layer on which Earth's plates ride
