Holy crackers, Wegener!


Last class we talked about plates as puzzle pieces and admired Alfred Wegener's insight. Today we'll stick to plates, but in the form of Graham crackers. Yes, this session seems to be about food! It's not intentional, just happened, and nobody is complaining.

To learn what happens when two tectonic plates say, crash into each other, the kids worked with crackers and a little marshmallow cream. It works amazingly well, just like the Earth's crust!

This was a great activity, and we are slowly trying to begin to think what form our science explanations will take this time.

And if you are curious about Alfred Wegener, check out this beautiful animation about his life:
