Build and slice open a model of the earth. Yes, with the included modeling materials construct the earth’s iron core, the mantle, and the thin outer crust. Cut the model in half and develop an understanding of the earth’s structure. Then, make a churning lava fountain and observe the force of the earth’s different density layers.
Create your own lava flows – runny to oozingly thick – and explore various volcanic rocks. Make your own pyroclastic eruptions to different degrees.
Connect the earth’s crust to real rocks and experiment with igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic rocks. Deposit sediments to make your own rocks and compare with actual rock formations. Make your own fossils. Learn about the humble origins of exotic metamorphic rocks such as marble.
Discover where rocks from the kit are found on the map. Grasp the crucial role that each rock type plays in the dynamic history of the planet. Discover which minerals form rocks and link the primary rock forming minerals to rocks, volcanoes and geology.
