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.

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.
