Metamorphic Rock

We had a "smashing" time learning about metamorphic rock! Not only did we learn that metamorphic rock is formed by a rock undergoing massive heat and pressure, we also got a little snack!

We observed our rock..(ahem..snickers!) and drew a picture of it.

After that, we applied tons of heat and pressure to our poor little rock..(ahem..snickers!) and watched it transform into something that looked very different that when we started!

We squeezed our rock, put a book on our rock, stood on our rock, and sat on our rock!

We learned that heat and pressure makes metamorphic rock...and we also learned that a squished snicker bar tastes way better than a normal shaped one!

Science is "sweeeet"!
