I found this fun rock cycle experiment (Twinkl) and thought it would compliment Haley’s science unit this week.
I set out the necessary supplies and Haley started shaving the chocolate into piles.
We layered the three chocolates in our foil packet. Then we added pressure by hitting it with our fists.
The pressure made the shavings stick together, forming a sedimentary-type rock.
We layered chocolate shavings in the next foil packet. This time we pounded it, pressed it between our hands, and squeezed it in our palms.
The pressure and heat helped created a metamorphic-type rock.
We took the rest our chocolate shavings and layered them in our last foil packet. we placed it in a ziplock bag to make it waterproof.
We held it under boiling hot water for a minute or so. It was melted and oozing.
We placed it in an ice-cold bath to help it harden.
The intense heat then cold created an igneous-type rock. This was SO cool and yummy!
We served it over ice cream! Edible science is ALWAYS a hit!
