The sheets of paper are the bread and the layer of foam is the cheese. The 4x8 pvc foam sheet is something that most everybody is familiar with but just don't realize what it is called. It has many uses and you can often see it at science fairs where it is used as a large display surface to write information on. It is also often used by architectural students to make models of buildings and structures. It is also known as foam core board. Don't mistake it with poster board.
