Sweet Rock Cycle



...


Sixth graders visited the school lab to represent the rock cycle process.  First, they cut some gummies into small bits. Those were the rocks turned into pieces of sediment. Once they had all the sediment broken as weathering happens; erosion and deposition mix the pieces altogether. And that is what they did. The pieces of gummies were smashed and squeezed together by their hands to compact them into one sedimentary rock. After, they rubbed them against foil paper to put on heat and put some books on top to apply pressure, it turned into a metamorphic rock. 


Finally, they placed those rocks on heaters, so they melted and became lava, which later turned into an igneous rock once it cooled off.  By doing all these steps, pupils learned how the rock cycle works in a sweet and concrete way.
