Earth's Layers & Ice Cream Aquifers

In Earth Science, we made "edible aquifers".  We used ice and sprite for the aquifer, ice cream for the confining layer (clay soil), crushed graham crackers for the dirt, green sprinkles for the vegetation, a straw for a water pipe, and the students used their mouths as water pumps. 

 Ellie S's fabulous diagrams of our experiment, and the layers of the earth.

We cut open hard boiled eggs to simulate the earth's layers.

We are having lots of fun!
