I had just started the layers of the Earth with my students this week. Our consultant gave us an activity with Peanut M&M candies to use with this lesson. Be sure to check on peanut allergies before doing this lesson. The students carefully bit the peanut M&M candy in half. The outer chocolate shell represents the crust, the inner milk chocolate represents the mantle, and the peanut represents the core. Cute way to remember the layers!
