By 11/10/2023Science, Year 3

Today in science, year 3 learnt about igneous rocks.

We used white and milk chocolate chips to show rocks in the ground. We put the chips into a bowl and put the bowl into hot water. This was like rocks being melted at the earth’s core.

The chips melted and blended together. This showed the minerals had melted. We poured the melted chocolate out which was like the molten rock coming out from inside the earth.

The molten rock solidifies and forms a new rock, called igneous rock.
