Reflection: Journaling Incredible Edible Earth Changes - Section 3: Explore


The kids were soooo excited to get the opportunity to use graham crackers and whipped cream in science.  But the trick was getting them to agree to wait until we were done with our activity before they sampled the edible Earth.  I had to assure them that no matter if they were the writer or the person who moved the crackers around, they would each get the same amount to eat in the end.  We, of course, threw the models out and ate the ones left in the package.
