This resource is perfect for 6th grade Earth Science.
It includes a chart of Earth Layer Characteristics. The chart is formatted to fit 1/2 a page so that it can be used in notebooks. I have also included a full page version that can be used instead.
The chart includes space for students to write the following characteristics of the crust, mantle, outer core, & inner core
- state of matter
This resource also has a list of 20 characteristics that can be used to fill in the chart.
I have included a categorized and non-categorized list of characteristics.
I use this as a group activity. I cut up the characteristics so that they are on strips. Students group the characteristics by layer then fill in their charts. You can also paste the characteristics around the classroom and have the students search for each. You can also use this as an independent activity.
Please let me know if you have any other questions.
