Make a mess meteor crater! When we went on our last camping trip we thought about stopping at the meteor crater. It was a little bit farther than we were wanting to go on our quick weekend so we’ll have to go another time.
We’ve had talks about them here and there, and my 8 year old has read about it in some of his books so I thought it would be fun to make some craters ourselves.
We found some meteors of different sizes.
Then we filled a bowl with some flour and flattened it out. This is the land on earth.
Then got up high in “space”
And let the meteors fall to earth
Repeat with all sizes and see how the craters change.
If wheat flour/gluten is a problem in your house, tapioca starch is a good alternative as is any other type of flour. Or do it outside with soft dirt!
