In this layer of the earth activity, students label and color each layer of the earth. Then students are asked to describe each layer below.
In this earth science instructional activity, 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 examine what lies within the Earth. They research and create scale models illustrating the layers of the Earth and write skits advocating a travel plan to send a probe into the Earth's mantle.
Students 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.
Students examine the layers of the Earth by comparing it to a hard-boiled egg. In this layers of the Earth lesson, students decorate an egg with the continents and oceans. They examine and compare the inner layers of an egg to those of the Earth before discussing how volcanos are formed. They complete the associated worksheet.
Students examine the Earth's crust or lithosphere, mantle and core. They complete research using assigned web sites before designing a model of the Earth using items such as Play-Doh, peaches and apples.
Students 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.
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. 
Learners interpret and analyze a graph concerning temperature and the structure of the Earth's atmosphere. They analyze relationships between altitude, atmospheric temperature, and the different layers of the atmosphere.
Fourth graders observe the effects of an earthquakes as it occurs. They study the structure of the Earth as it relates to the theory of plate tectonics. Students survey such events as mountain building, volcanoes, earthquakes, and sea-floor spreading at various plate boundaries. They identify areas where volcanic activity is likely to occur.
Pupils study what earthquakes are and why they happen. In this earthquake lesson, students pretend they in an earthquake. They learn the associated vocabulary and listen to a demonstration lesson in which the teacher explains the layers of the earth using food items.
Young scholars 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.
In this ozone layer day worksheet, learners 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.
Sixth graders define atmosphere and hydrosphere, explore through experimentation how the atmosphere was formed, and describe the layers of the Earth's atmosphere and their distances.
Students discuss plate tectonics and the layers of the earth's interior. They use eggs as models of the earth and answer questions regarding which part of the egg would represent which part of the earth.
First graders discover plate tectonics. They observe the forces of erosion. They observe the forces of weathering. They state three ways the earth changes. They record observations and make conclusions about their observations.
First graders study ways in which the earth changes due to erosion and weathering in this series of lessons.
In this Earth worksheet, students find 8 words, related to the Earth, in a puzzle. Students also use the words to answer 8 questions about the layers of the Earth.
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.
