Students will learn about the 4 major layers of the Earth as they assemble this Earth's layers foldable and answer the conclusion questions. The foldable is designed so that students will slowly pull back each layer to reveal the next layer that is found beneath.
It is sized perfectly to save you paper and fits great in any interactive notebook!
See the *PREVIEW* above to get a closer look at the assembled foldable.
I typically give students 1 class period (45 minutes) to color, cut, and assemble the foldable, while the following class period allows students to use the foldable and read the passage in order to answer the provided questions.
Terms and concepts included:
▤ inner core
▤ outer core
▤ oceanic crust vs. continental crust
▤ composition of each layer
▤ thickness of each layer
▤ state of matter of each layer
▤ tectonic plates
▤ convection currents
▤ temperature of each layer
▤ what causes the mantle to "flow"?
▤ cause of Earth's magnetic field
