Mining For Minerals!

I found this activity at .

This was a real fun activity and lucky for us we had everything we needed already on hand.

All you need is chocolate chip cookies, play money, toothpicks, a timer, and the worksheet that is FREE. The goal is to mine for ores without damaging and land while doing so. You earn money for any ores (chocolate chips) you find. You lose money if you cause any land damage.

They learned that mining is not a easy task.

They both liked the profit that they earned! They both were moaning and groaning when it was time to pay up for the land damage:)

What I liked best about this activity is that it allowed them to also practice their math skills while having fun learning about something that truly interest them.
