Plate Tectonics with the classic Oreo. I will never forget my 4th grade science teacher having us remove the nuts from a brownie and put the brownie back together to demonstrate strip-mining.
Plate tectonics... I remember my professor teaching us plate tectonics with the Oreo cookie method! Dr. Heiss rocked!!!
Teaching Strategy: S'mores OR Oreo plate tectonics! Graham Crackers/Oreo Cookies: Cracks/ plates moving in the earth Marshmallows/Creme Filling: Heat and Pressure Chocolate Chips: Magma This would be a great activity to get students excited about tectonic plates and metamorphic pressure. This activity is important because it visually shows students that heat and pressure are critical components for changes in the earth's layers.
Plate Tectonics with an Oreo - the educational value of a cookie. Aka an awesome science lesson
Including a little bit of fun snack food into our science lesson would be enjoyable and unforgettable for students! By using oreos, students can demonstrate the movements of plates as they float above over our "liquid-like" asthenosphere, separate at divergent boundaries, subduct at convergent boundaries, and slide past each other at transform boundaries. This would be a short and memorable activity for students during our lesson about plate tectonics.
