Igneous Rock!

Igneous rock is formed by cooling magma. We had fun learning about this!

Just like lava hardens as it cools, so does wax and CHOCOLATE!Candle Volcano! As the wax cools, it hardens! Just like igneous rock!
This is our chocolate, excuse me "lava", as it cooled and hardened on our desks!

Rock on!

  1. Awesome activity can't wait to do with my class next week! One question.. how do you make the candle? Please list ingredients and process. GREATLY APPRECIATE IT!

  2. I was wondering about the Igenous rock as well. Did you use food coloring to dye chocolate then let it cool on wax paper?
    I would like to do this experiment next week! Thanks!
