divergent plates


a: Divergent plates ~
b: a jelly Doughnut pulled apart

What: "Grab a jelly Doughnut from both ends. Pull outward and see what happens. The jelly in the inside will ooze out. This is somewhat like the tectonic plates on the bottom of the Atlantic ocean. As they pull away from each other, magma from the depths of the earth will ooze out."You may replace Doughnut with a Twinky, or any other fruit filled danish to get the idea across.
