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'll have your choice!! These resources are both INB friendly and traditional notebook friendly. A review sheet is now also included. Please see preview.
