Creating a 3D model of an ocean floor for children
More than 70 per cent of the earth's land is covered by the ocean. On the seabed there are high peaks, wide plateaus and wide ditches. The majority of these characteristics remain unfamiliar to the bathymetrist - a scientist studying the shape of the seabed - until the emergence of ultrasound andatellites. The creation of a model of the seabed from ordinary domestic objects enables kids to visualise a part of the earth's crust that they cannot see or touch firsthand.
Apply two or three droplets of cyan dye and mix the mixture to evenly spread the color. Lay an even coat of about 1/2 inches thick batter over the bottom of the carton. Straighten the pastry with a thick sheet of synthetic material. The even pastry surface forms the abgeyssal plane, a shallow surface of the seabed.
Grab two large fistfuls of batter and flatten them with your rolling pin. Now. Scroll the pastry until you have a large 1/4 inches thick rectangular shape. Half pleat the square lengthways. Continue pleating it in the middle until it is about 1/2 in. broad. Lay the stripe of pastry along the leftside of the shoebox.
Pour in the batter until it touches about half the side of the packet. On this side is the mainland shelves, an area just below the sea level near the coastline. Unroll three more hands of pastry into two large 1/4 thick squares. Using two fistful of batter for one square and a fistful of batter for the other.
Half the length of each square. Keep pleating until each leaf is about 1/2'' broad. Guide your thick slice of sculpture from the tip of the continent shelves diagonally down to the abgeyssal plane. The result is a precipitous incline that forms the main land escarpment - a precipitous drop-off that links the mainland shelves to the seabed.
Grab two small fistfuls of batter and roller each of them with your rolling pin to form a square. Using your hand, scroll each of these squares lengthwise to form a master mould. Guide your fingers along the fold between the two trunks and form a ditch. Use the thick synthetic material to smoothen the right and wrong sides of the rollers so that they fall down onto the sea floor like the sides of a mountain.
Press the pastry with your hands on both sides of the ditch. As a result, the mid-oceanic back is formed, a characteristic of the seabed with two ranges of mountains divided by a single valle. Using your little thumb, scrape part of the batter out of the abgeyssal plane to the right of the mid-ocean crest.
The result is a ditch. Submarine ditches, like the Marianas ditch, are the lowest parts of the ocean. Shape two piles of pastry and place them to the right of the ditch. In order to make a hill, take a golfball-sized slice of batter and roller it between the palms of your hand to make a football.
Put the sphere on the seabed and press the outside part down against the top, smooth the fold with your finger and leave the centre part higher. Carefully work the top of the sphere until it becomes a point. Using the thick synthetic material, cut from the top of one of the peaks, about 1/2 inches from the top away.
Mount with the summit is a sea mount, an insulated hill on the seabed, while the hill with the shallow top is a river mount - a sea mount with a shallow, aboded top. Leave the pastry to drip for about 5 whole day. Trim off one of the long sides of the shoebox with clippers so that you can see the outlines of the seabed.
