GET KIDS THINKING! This is not a standard "definition-style" or matching quiz!
This 10 question quiz covers the basics of the layers of the Earth, but asks questions in a ways that mimics how standardized tests generally ask questions about this topic. The first 4 questions require basic understanding of the positions of each layer, but the last 6 questions require some thinking or analysis of simple graphs (middle school level).
There are two versions provided. The questions are the same and they differ only by the answer choices. Therefore, wandering eyes will see a quiz that looks like their own, but actually has different correct answers.
