Description:

In this activity, learners discover how geologists use stratigraphy, the study of layered rock, to understand the sequence of geological events. Learners use baking soda, vinegar, and different colored play dough to model how "lava" flows. This lesson plan includes background information, play dough recipes, student worksheets, and an optional volcano mapping extension activity.
