1) CRUST: Oceanic & Continental (about 3 to 50 miles thick), plus The Mohorovicic Discontinuity = (The Lithosphere: solid) 2) Mantle: a) The Upper Mantle, magma molten rock, b )The Lower Mantel (about 1,796 miles thick 2,000 degrees F) = Asthenosphere (Flows around the outerr core) 3) Outer Core - Molten Metal (11,000 degrees F) that flows around the inner core & is thought to cause Earth's magnetic field. 4) Inner Core - Hot solid mostly iron, with some nickel, (like meteorites), may spin.
What would it be like to take a journey to the center of the earth? Well, you'd travel through the Earth's four concentric layers: inner core, outer core, mantle and crust. The crust is the outer layer of the earth. It is a thin layer between 0-60 km thick. The crust is the solid rock…
SC.5.E.5.2 - Recognize the major common characteristics of all planets and compare/contrast the properties of inner and outer planets. This activity is great for a class activity or an informal evaluation of the students. It sharpens the students' sorting skills, as well as comparing and contrast. Students will also demonstrate their knowledge of the difference between inner and outer planets throughout the activity, which can be use for informal assessments.
nteractive Math Notebook: Students love Interactive Notebook Activities. With this Outer Space Interactive Notebook Cut and Paste Activities packet students will be able to practice number matching, counting, addition and subtraction. This Outer Space packet contains 10 space themed worksheets.
#Science #EarthScience This is an absolutely brilliant hands-on way to teach students about the layers of the Earth! Students could even make their own at the end of the unit using polymer clay, which the art teacher could fire if they have a kiln (or you could bake at home).
Students construct the layers of the Earth (inner core, outer core, mantle, and crust) using an Oreo, some chocolate syrup, and a small candy piece. This is such an exciting activity to use when teaching a lesson on the layers of the Earth.
Planetary Nebula NGC 2818 | The Hubble Space Telescope has imaged striking details of the famed planetary nebula designated NGC 2818, which lies in the southern constellation of Pyxis (the Compass). The spectacular structure of the planetary nebula contains the outer layers of a star that were expelled into interstellar space.
