This is a great take home project for students in their first study of Earth Science. It requires students to build a model of the earth with a lot of components including on the outside: continents, oceans, earthquake faults, etc. the students cut out a section of their model and their they model the inside of the earth with a scale factor. Student really learn the parts of the earth in this project. A terrific take home project which would be a culminating project in earth science. 3 pages including detailed grading rubric.
