Learning and caring together, building a firm foundation for the future

Chocolate Rocks.

As part of our topic ‘Land, Sea and Sky’, we looked at different types of rocks this week. 

First, we hunted for rocks in pictures and thought about where we find rocks in the environment. We found that they are everywhere! Can we name some of the places rocks can be found?

Next, we learnt about 3 different types of natural rock, called sedimentary, metamorphic and igneous. Can we remember the names of these rocks at home? We spoke about how these rocks are different because of how they are made. Can we describe how each rock is made?

We then had great fun making each type of rock in turn using chocolate! We had to use chocolate shavings, foil, our strong arms, and for some warm or boiling water. As you can see from the pictures we had to use lots of strength to put great pressure on the chocolate in order for it to compact into rocks. Can we show you how to make these at home?
