Layers Upon Layers
Science: Layers of the Earth
Hey Kids! Remember reading
the Magic School Bus: Inside
the Earth the other day? Well now we are going to explore the
inside of the earth like Ms. Frizzle's class did. Except we will be
using the internet, instead of a magic school bus, to explore the
inside of the earth.
As explorers of the earth, you need to fill out your chart of the earth, so that we can remind our teacher of what the inside of the earth looks like. On the chart you need to label the blanks next to each layer of the earth (example: crust). Then you need to determine which layer is the thickest and which is the thinnest (Remember, don't just look at the picture, but at the numbers). Finally, determine what minerals each layer is made of and write it on the lines at the bottom of the page next to the correct layer title. Once you have filled up the chart don't be afraid to continue exploring. Write any interesting facts you find on the back of the sheet.
Let's go explore the inside of the earth! To start exploring and complete your challenge you will need to click on the links below:
