Why Lesson Planet?

Weathering breaks down sandstone pieces, actually pecans or walnuts. Heat and pressure prepare the magma by melting chocolate chips in a microwave for 45 seconds and then stirring. All roles, including erosion, uplifting, time, ocean, plate tectonics, and crust, have clearly defined tasks. The materials needed for this rocking recipe are inexpensive and easy to find.
