Class Experience

Students will be able to describe what is occurring at each boundary while enjoying this fun and edible experiment.
I am a Geologist and homeschool mom who enjoys sharing science with others.
Students will need the following materials for this class:
1. A plate of whipped cream spread out so that 2 graham crackers at a time can fit on top. (Parents may need to be available to refill the whipped cream for younger learners to get the best learning experience.) You'll want to make the whipped cream about 1 cm thick for each of the representations we do so that they can visualize what is happening.
2. 8 to 10 graham crackers
3. One large marshmallow
4. One small bowl of water
5. Paper towels for clean up
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
A short introduction will be presented in Nearpod. However, parents are not required to create an account for Nearpod as I will share my screen. Parents may wish to be available for their younger learners to help with the whipped cream for this experiment.
