We enjoyed being coal miners today and didn’t realise how tasty coal was!
We each had a chocolate chip cookie which represented a piece of the Earth and drew a habitat which grew on top of our piece of Earth. We then used a tooth pick to ‘mine’ the ‘coal’ out of our cookie.
We compared the Earth before and after mining and tried to put it back to how it was before we dug all the coal out – but it was impossible!
We decided the only way to tidy up was to eat the mess we had created!
