How are Mountains Made

Do you know how mountains are made? We made that blog will educate you and your kiddos on the three different types of plate tectonic boundaries divergent, convergent, and transform plate boundaries. With this edible experiment you will see the testing of the convergent boundaries, where two plates push together and form mountains.   By pushing the graham crackers together the kids will actually be forming a mountain that they can eat after learning.

Science Saturday: How mountains are made.

Form a Geode

Take the traditional rock candy string experiment to the next level by making these tasty geodes. It’s all about crystallization achieved through total saturation with this experiment. Learn how to make these realistic looking candy creations at howtocookthat.net.

Science Saturday: Without the use of a microscope you can learn all about how crystals form.

Rock on!

Squeeze an Egg

Here is an egg-cellent science experiment from science-sparks.com and it will have everyone cringing while little hands squeeze a fragile egg. Give it a try…now try harder. You will never accomplish breaking that egg. Really! Well you can crack it into a pan for breakfast and then eat it.

Science Saturday: The egg’s shape clearly makes it much stronger than it looks.

edible-stadiumIf you ever had the desire to build your own stadium there is still time! Serious Eats has the blueprints and will take you through step by step in a DIY slide show and just in time for the Super Bowl 50.go-packers

This is a view from the Packers End Zone when they were playing back in 2011. Of course, clever people will find it easy enough to change end zones names to Broncos and Panthers. Oddly, just last Monday, the ground crew at Levi Stadium where this year’s game will be played, had to change end zone names too. They painted the Broncos end zone on the visitor side, which was the wrong side according to CBSSports. The Broncos were supposed to get the other end zone because they are the home team for Super Bowl 50. So you too at home could make the changes.

Go ahead and get your “home team” together and start building. Looks like a fun pre-game activity involving the kiddos.

Hey, thanks Betsy for finding and sharing this edible treat.
