Over the next six weeks we will be highlighting lots of ways to have some science-themed school holiday fun. Everything from hands-on activities to events and exhibitions.
For the end of the year - why not try this fun activity with your students. Make chocolate fudge using three slightly different combinations of ingredients to model the different proportions of minerals in three volcanic rocks: basalt, andesite and rhyolite.
This activity will help students see the similar features between the three varieties of rocks and also make yummy Christmas gifts.
