Stalagmite Structures

A stalagmite is a type of rock formation that rises from the floor of a cave due to the accumulation of material deposited on the floor from ceiling drippings.


Stalagmites may be composed of lave, minerals, mud, peat pitch, sand, sinter and amberat.



As part of our cave theme, we spent a couple of days learning about these fascinating objects.



Using play dough, toy icicles, and rocks, we created our very own stalagmites!
