Haley started reading her Usborne Encyclopedia of Planet Earth this week. Since was learning about the layers of the earth, I thought she might like creating a model with play-doh.
I set out a her book along with a tray of colored Play-doh jars.
She welcomed this brain break. Who doesn’t love a little squish therapy?
She finished her model, including replicas of the continents. She told me the blue represented the oceanic crust and the green represented the continental crust.
She wanted to slice her earth model in half. This is actually my favorite part of this activity.
It looks so pretty! It reminds me of an Everlasting Gobstopper. So much fun!
