The Rock Cycle 

To look in depth at the formation of rocks, the children today created their own rock cycle with Starburst sweets. They first melted them down into ‘lava’ and then let that cool to make igneous rock. We then crumbled the igneous rock down to make small sediments, and then applied pressure to form sedimentary rock. Finally, the children applied extreme heat and pressure to represent how sedimentary turns into metamorphic.
