Last week p7 in science were investigating the structure of the earth.
We researched the different layers of the earth’s structure.
We found out there are 4 different layers. The inner core is the hottest part of the earth, outer core still extremely hot. Mantle, the thickness of the mantle is 2900km thick and the crust is the thinnest layer. It is the layer we live on and is between 50-60 km thick.
We decided to make plasticine models of the structure of the earth. We even tried to match up the continents on the crust!
Inside the models they were different colours representing each layer, inner core,outer core, mantle, crust. We cut the models in half to see the inside of the earth.
This is what it looked like after.
We made labels from our research that gave information about each layer.
If you want to learn about each layer, go on the websites we went on…….WHY NOT!?
or…..if you learn better through music, how about testing your knowledge with this song…
