Layers of the Earth Lesson

Introduce students to the layers of the Earth with this PowerPoint! With guided notes, a short activity, and homework, students will learn about what makes up each layer of the Earth.

The PowerPoint takes you through a Do Now, a short activity about the density of Earth’s layers (cut outs for the activity are provided), and notes about each layer. Students follow along with Guided Notes, and a short homework assignment reviews the key components of each layer.

Layers explored in this presentation are the crust (continental and oceanic), lithosphere, asthenosphere, upper and lower mantle, and the outer and inner core.

This is a great introduction to properties of the layers of Earth and establishes base knowledge to help students understand plate tectonics.

Due to clip art copyright, some images in the PowerPoint cannot be moved or edited, but the text is editable.

All worksheets are fully editable, answer keys and instructions are provided.
