Product Description
A Layers of the Earth class teaching about the metallic nature of the inner and outer cores is a good opportunity for students to learn the characteristics of metals. A teaching lesson is described on the Core of the Earth, which is made of iron and nickel. Two document camera-ready images showing the structure of the Earth are provided to project for your class. This is followed by a description of an inquiry activity where students discover which metals are attracted to an iron magnet. Suggestions to gather the different metals is offered. In addition, the data table for students to record the results is provided, which can be a stand-alone assignment or inserted into a student’s lab notebook.

There is also a vocabulary matching worksheet included with the answer key. This could be used as a homework assignment or a formal assessment. Finally, there is a student information sheet to run an activity where students construct a timeline of significant earthquakes in the US.
