Edible Soil

My third grade geologists studied the layers of soil and then ate their lab! The square of chocolate in the bottom of our cup was bedrock and the Fruit Loops above it represented weathered rock. Then we added a crushed Graham Cracker for subsoil. Chocolate pudding became topsoil and a crushed Oreo was humus. We topped the cup off with leaf litter (green sprinkles).

Our new lizard, Lucky, was molting today. “Brown anoles molt in small pieces, unlike some other reptiles, which molt in one large piece. Anoles may consume the molted skin to replenish supplies of calcium.”
