Sept. 26th: Chocolate Plate Tectonics Lab Day

Today was our first attempt at a lab in class.  We used corn syrup and chocolate powder in a pie tin and heated it on a hot plate to model plate tectonics.  Each student has a five page lab report to accompany the activity and it’s due tomorrow.  The lab went fairly well, however the kids were awfully loud the  ENTIRE TIME.  We’ll get better at it.  If they missed the activity, we can recreate it when they return so they don’t miss out.  The lab covers everything we’ve worked on the entire quarter and is a good lead up to the test later this week.  I’ll include a link to a video of it on Youtube here:
