Sedimentary, Igneous, and Metamorphic Rock Snacks

Remember how I promised, 
to post about how we
"ate up"
information on different rock forms?

I have FINALLY decided to get around to that!


In THIS post,
I showed how the kiddos and I used the

we also created some tasty snack
with our
Lemonhead Homeschool Group,
using ideas/recipes from the

Since our Lemonhead friends are allergic to gluten,

Lady J's gluten free cookies.

Also, we did not make individual models,
but rather one big model

Smashing Snickers-
what could make rocks

Here are the finished products
of our rock making fun:
