Observation Over Time

Year 3 made chocolate sedimentary and metamorphic rocks, to reinforce their learning within this topic. First, we used layers of grated milk and white chocolate and pressed them into a sedimentary rock. We then put them into the fridge and once they had solidified we cut them open to see the rounded grains, just like limestone and sandstone rocks. We then used heat and pressure to change the sedimentary rock into a metamorphic rock by using heat and pressure. When we looked inside, we could see layers, just like the rocks slate and gneiss.

MAKING SEDIMENTARY AND METAMORPHIC CHOCOLATE ROCKS in LKS2

We used grated chocolate, milk and white, to make layers of sediment. We included lumps of small rocks too just like in granite. We continued to sprinkle new layers of sediment on top of each layer just like slate and shale rocks. Then we administered 25 million years of pressure and heat to help turn the sediment into sedimentary and metamorphic rocks.

OBSERVATION SKILLS

We looked closely at how our 'rocks' had turned out. We could see grains within and some of us even had layers. Some were powdery and crumbly just like chalk.

Next we have heated our choc rocks in our hands and have made metamorphic spheres.
