that plaster mixture is 3 parts vermiculite, 2 parts plaster and 2 parts plus a
little extra water. I am doing this activity with sixth graders now. I found
that if I used pints as my measuring unit, then I would be able to fill three
pint size molds with each "batch."

you may have seen this web page before
