This resource begins with a 2-page close reading on the layers of the Earth. Students are first introduced to the four layer model -inner core, outer core, mantle, crust. The lithosphere and asthenosphere are then introduced and the relationship between those layers and the mantle and plate tectonics is then explained. There are MULTIPLE formats that you can use for note taking. There is an INB page and foldable page, each provided in black and white and in color, for students to take notes on the layers. They are both provided for the 4-layer model, or including the litho/asthenosphere. There are multiple 'Earths' provided- labeled and unlabeled, in color and in black and white. You can have students label and color their Earth, or print the labeled, colored version. You've got options. These resources are both INB friendly and traditional notebook friendly. A review sheet is now also included. Please see preview.

This resource is NOW included in my ****Plate Tectonics BUNDLE****, which also includes all of the following...

I offer the following Geology Bundles with Student Workbooks:

If you REALLY want to save: You can purchase ALL of the mentioned geology bundles with student workbooks in my GEOLOGY UNIT MEGA BUNDLE. The mega bundle saves you 25% and will take over half a school year (assuming 45 minute class periods) to complete.

I also offer the following Astronomy Bundles with Student Workbooks:

If you REALLY want to save: You can purchase BOTH of the Astronomy bundles with student workbooks in my ASTRONOMY UNIT MEGA BUNDLE.
