The easiest way to help your students understand the layers of the Earth is to relate it back to other common objects with layers. Luckily, there are many food items to choose from. This download includes posters and worksheets to help tie their previous knowledge to new knowledge and get those memory neurons firing.
Great to help develop critical thinking skills!

This download covers the crust, mantle, outer core, inner core, lithosphere, and asthenosphere.
These work really well when paired with labs that match the worksheets and posters. If you are working on comparing the layers of an egg with the layers of the Earth, the students love when they can see a boiled egg even if they have seen one a thousand times before.
A great hands on activity to go with this is the Earth Layers Pop-up Card. Download it here
Instructions for posters - After downloading you can send to a local photo printer (such as Walgreens or Walmart Photo) to have printed as any poster size available. You can also choose to print on standard sized paper to hand out to students.
Instructions for worksheets - Print as you would any other worksheet. These are included as both JPG and PDF in order to ensure you have multiple printing options in case one does not print as you need it it.
