With renewed energy after the long Christmas break, I attempted another school project. This one ended up being fun, simple, AND informative! At CC this week the kids were reciting the parts of the earth, so we made a play-dough model to see the various parts.
First we made play-dough -- in the microwave since our stove was broken -- and then used food coloring to get all the different sections represented, and to give our hands that nice "you've been crafting" look.
Their favorite part was cutting into it to see the cross-section.
Thank you Pinterest for giving the kids something to use for their CC presentations this week!
