Product Description
Through this activity, students can discover that the inner core is the densest layer of the Earth and the crust is the least dense. All the science behind the activity is explained and the known densities of the materials used in this experiment and the layers of the Earth are given. The activity requires the availability of small pieces of granite or basalt; a tip is given to run the activity with steel if iron samples aren’t available. Result table is included. For students that finish early, the resource also includes a worksheet with questions on the activity.
