The students will use this activity to learn about the different layers of the Earth. The lab includes a pre-assessment or a place to list the properties of the Earth's Layers. It then goes into the lab procedures using a Milky Way. Students will cut into a milky way to see how the layers compare to those of Earth. The lab then asks questions about each layer and why it relates to the Earth layers. At the end of the lab there is a post assessment or and 'exit slip' to assess what the student learned throughout the lab.
The students will LOVE getting to eat the Milky Way bar at the end of the lab!!!
