Science - chocolate rocks

Year 3 are currently learning about Rocks in their Science lessons. This week they were finding out about the 3 main types of rocks - igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic - and how they are formed. After watching a short video about this, they had a go at making some of their own 'chocolate rocks'. Unfortunately, they were not quite as successful as we had hoped, although you can see some of the layers of 'sediment' in some of the pictures! Despite this, the children were still able to discuss confidently how the three types of rock were formed!
