Today we looked at how sedimentary rocks are formed. We have already learned about igneous and metamorphic rocks. We used chocolate to model how sediments are forced together, when pressure is applied, to form rock.

We grated some milk chocolate, dark chocolate and white chocolate. Then we layered the chocolate in a plastic cup and applied pressure to the chocolate. This caused it to become one solid rock.

Then for the best bit - we ate the chocolate!
