Graham Cracker Plate Tectonics Lab

Students were able to take a hands on approach to learning about plate tectonics.  Graham crackers were used to represent the continental crust.  Fruit Roll Up was used to represent oceanic crusts (they are less dense than continental crusts).  With a lithosphere of frosting, students manipulated the materials to show convergent boundaries, rifts, subduction zones and more!
