    Geology! They're edible, and now educational as well! Plate Tectonics with the classic Oreo.

    Ella did this in 5th grade science: Phases of the Moon with Oreos

    Oreo Plate Tectonics - Using Oreos to teach science

    Plate Tectonics: Brush, Bump and Pull Experiment. Great way for students to experiment with a hands-on model of plate interaction using styrofoam (tectonic plates) and water (magma in lithosphere). Can model and predict the what various interactions do and even model specific natural disasters such as the Haiti Earthquake. (MY TEKS)

    How to Make a Balloon-Powered Paper Plate Racer « Model Cars, Rockets & Trains. My son's science class just did this experiment.

    Shows what happens inside the earth that causes the plates to move and produce things like volcanos.

    In this activity, students place foam cut-outs in the shape of the Earth's tectonic plates on top of a layer of water. Students will be able to test the theory of plate tectonics by sliding the plates across the layer of water. This is a great motivational activity for a lesson on the theory of plate tectonics.

    Make Salt Dough Dinosaur Fossils with your kids - so easy to do and really works well.

    Magnet Painting! Move the Magnet under plate, moving the paper clip around to paint!

    Layers of the Earth!

    Fun Science Experiment: Pour whole milk and add red bull - let sit 5 minutes and the acid in the red bull will cause the protein in the milk to separate - liquid changing to solid! New Science Experiment to try!

    Earth's Layers Foldable

    Quick Brain Breaks to use throughout the day. Your students will LOVE these and be ready to focus again when you are done.

    Mitosis using oreos - edible biology!

    Lots of fun ideas about teaching the solar system and how to get students excited about learning it. I would love to use some of these projects in class.

    Educational Videos. Less kinesthetic, more visual/audio learning. Visual portrayal of lesson. No need for supplies/projects. Remediation strategy.
