Igneous Rocks--Yummy!

 I highly recommend that you all start studying magma and igneous rocks immediately as it is a delicious field of study.

We took a bag of chocolate chips and melted them to create magma/lava.  Then we let the magma cool on a plate to see how igneous rocks are formed.  We put the rest of the magma on ice cream to see what happened when magma cooled down faster.
 You know what happens when magma cools down quickly?  The experiment ends and you get to eat sooner.  It is awesome.

Oskar had fun too.  Cutie patootie.
