Pupils are introduced to the various layers of the Earth. Using fruit, they discover each layer and discover the use of similies in describing it. They watch a video to better describe each layer of the Earth and its purpose.
Students examine how there are three layers inside the Earth. They design their own model of the layers of the Earth with a Styrofoam ball. They illustrate the layers inside the Earth with crayons.
Students complete activities to study the Earth's layers. In this Earth layers activity, students experiment with a boiled egg to study the layers of the Earth. Students chart their observations and discuss. Students then find things they eat at home that are layered.
Eighth graders study the earth's surface.  In this planet structure lesson students view a PowerPoint presentation then draw and label the earths layers. 
For this earth science worksheet, students use the words in the word bank to complete the word search about the layers of the Earth. Students then answer the questions.
In this earth science worksheet, students examine a diagram of the layers of the earth. Students fill out the diagram, labeling the crust, core and mantle. Students then write a description of each layer.
Students identify the geological layers of the Earth. They graphically depict each layer's characteristics. Students label and develop a color key for their exhibit. They create a down-to-Earth 3-D display with Erasable Markers.
Students investigate the Earth's crust. In this geology instructional activity, students identify the materials made up of the Earth's crust and investigate the different kinds of soil.
Learners name the different layers of the Earth. In this earth science lesson, students calculate the thickness of each layer. They draw a scaled model of the Earth.
Third graders write an essay. In this earth's layers lesson, 3rd graders view a power point presentation on layers of the earth and discuss it. They write a short essay on the layers and their characteristics. They use Microsoft Word to publish their essays.
In this layers of the Earth worksheet, 4th graders fill in the blanks in 13 statements. They use words that apply to the layers of the Earth and the formation of the Earth.
Salman Khan goes into detail about the layers of the Earth. He provides names and general numbers about depths and composition.
Learners conduct an experiment. In this Earth's layers lesson, students learn about soil, sand and rock. They complete their own Jell-O Mountain and investigate the Earth's layers on-line.
In this earth science instructional activity, students read about the characteristics of the Earth's layers such as the mantle, core, and crust. They answer 10 mixed type questions using the online application.
Earth science super stars visit the National Earth Science Teachers Association's interactive website to glean information on the layers of the atmosphere. Data tables are provided for them to record what is collected. This assignment gives your middle or high schoolers practice interpreting graphs and following instructions. The result is new knowledge of the characteristics of each atmospheric layer. 
Life on Earth is made possible by the unique composition of its atmosphere. Working collaboratively, a scale model is created as young scientists learn about the different layers of gas that surround the planet. Cards are included that describe the specific region of the atmosphere that each group is responsible for adding to the model. Display the final product in your classroom as you continue teaching your students about this amazing planet we call home.
Students examine the constant changing of the Earth's atmosphere. After labeling the layers of the Earth, they identify various processes inside the Earth that can cause gases to be emitted. Using the internet, they research how the burning of the oil fields in Kuwait during the Persian Gulf War added to the amount of pollution and effects on the atmosphere.
For this ozone layer day worksheet, students read or listen to a passage about ozone layer day, then match phrases, fill in the blanks, choose words, unscramble words and sentences, put sentences in order, write discussion questions and conduct a survey.
Students define and understand the concept of geothermal features.  In this geothermal features lesson, students discuss and research geothermal features and record their findings on two worksheets (Geothermal Greatness and How does it all happen). Students additionally complete a tell us more worksheet. Students create projects and present to class.
Students work together to create a model of the Earth. They label and identify each layer and describing its properties. They discover how engineers use models to test different concepts.
