In this activity (on pages 11-12 of PDF) learners create models of lava layers that have formed on the moon. The model is created by mixing a series of different colored vinegar with baking soda, then using colored play dough to cover wet areas where each color of "lava" erupted. Clear straws are pushed into the thickest part of the finished layers to get a "core sample." Groups can present their findings and a list of questions is provided to guide students to a deeper understanding. The activity is part of a larger curriculum based on a video on DVD, which you can request for free by emailing email@example.com.
