Geology Treats: Layers of the Earth

Add this tasty activity to your lesson on the layers of the earth! In advance, prepare the dough recipe listed below. Have each student take a pinch of dough, wrap it around a Whoppers malted milk ball, and roll the ball in a bowl of Nestle Quik chocolate powder. Next, have the student carefully cut the ball in half with a butter knife. Point out that the cross section resembles the three layers of the earth: the crust, the mantle, and the core. Then let students dig into their mouthwatering models!

Mix together 1 3/4 cups creamy peanut butter, 2 cups powered sugar, 1 3/4 cups corn syrup or honey, and 2 cups powered milk. Store in an airtight container.
