OREO COOKIE SCIENCE EXPERIMENT


Mrs. Ferguson's science classes have been learning about plate tectonics.  The classes used Oreo cookies to demonstrate a sliding plate over the asthenophere.  This also showed movements of convergent, divergent and transform boundaries.  In the experiment, the upper cookie represented the lithosphere, the creamy filling the asthenosphere, and the lower cookie the lower mantle. What an interesting and delicious way to learn about science.  To view more pictures of this activity click here.
