In this activity, students will explore the layers of the earth and characteristics of each layer. The foldable will provide a visual of data explaining the composition of each layer and provide a resource for further investigations. This is a great activity to complete prior to learning about the tectonic plate boundaries but used after student’s have explored the process of sea-floor spreading.
Use the power point as a tool to teach the information on the layers of the earth. Students will fill in the information while the teacher is progressing through the PowerPoint. The power point includes steps on completing the foldable. If interested, I can send the power point after the activity is purchased.
