SWEET Rock Lab!

photo via to the square inch

To the Square Inch came up with a geology lab for kids to construct candy models of rocks!  

Rock Recipes:
Metamorphic: Take wheat and white bread, slice them into quarters. Next, stack them, alternating the bread (wheat, white).  Then, press down on the stack.

Sedimentary: Spread a layer of frosting on a graham cracker. Then add a thin layer of  "sediment" - sprinkles, swedish fish, and fruity pebbles. You repeat the process 2 times.

Igneous- Melt chocolate chips, pour on wax paper, and let harden.
