Year 3 have been learning about how rocks are formed. To help them understand the process they made sedimentary sandwiches!

Sedimentary rocks are formed when particles of mud, sand, bones and dead plants are squashed together over a very long time. They used a variety of ingredients to represent the different types of particles and then squashed them together between sliced bread. By then cutting the sandwich in half, they could see how the different layers had been squashed together, just like sedimentary rock formation!
