We Ate The Earth

One of Catherine's science projects this year was making a representation of the layers of the earth out of ice cream.  Well, half the earth anyway. 

Catherine with her model of the earth.  Obviously, it is not an exact replica. 

One slice of the earth showing the inner core, the middle layer of mantle, and the outer layer (the chocolate shell!) of the crust.  The blue frosting represents the oceans and the chocolate chips represent mountain ranges.
At any rate, the kids learned the layers of the earth in a memorable and tasty way!
