Product Description
Study Mars rocks with Mars Bars! This lab investigation explores the Essential Question: What is the Rock Cycle (Igneous, Sedimentary, Metamorphic)?

Share with your students freshly received Martian surface samples, which look coincidentally like "fun" or "bite size" candy bars (EX: Twix, Snickers, Milky Way, Reeses Peanut Butter Cup, etc. and obviously Mars Bars!). It is their job to observe and determine all the scientific information they can from these samples, before enjoying them!

Students will be able to:
• Identify patterns within the rock cycle and relate them to surface and subsurface events
• examine a simulated Martian surface core sample.
• learn how an unknown sample can be identified by matching it with a known sample.
• discover how surface samples can tell us about the history and make-up of Mars.
• consume the core sample at the end of the exercise [BE ALERT TO STUDENT’S FOOD ALLERGY WARNINGS! Products may contain nut and other allergens].

This lab is classroom tested to help students with the following Florida Next Generation Sunshine State Standards in Science. SWBAT
SC.7.E.6.2 Identify the patterns within the rock cycle and relate them to surface events (weathering and erosion) and sub-surface events (plate tectonics and mountain building).
SC.912.E.6.2 Connect surface features to surface processes that are responsible for their formation
