Earthquakes and mountains

I wanted to show the kids a fun visual about earthquakes and how mountains form. We used graham crackers for the earth’s crust and cool whip for the mantle. We made our earth rumble and our graham crackers rub together. After we talked about earthquakes, we pushed the graham crackers together to talk about how mountains form. I think they understood and the were happy to eat their newly formed mountains.
