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