6th Grade Layers of the Earth Lesson Plan
3B- use models to represent aspects of the natural world such as a model of Earth's layers

10A- build a model to illustrate the structural layers of Earth, including the inner core, outer core, mantle, crust, asthenosphere, and lithosphere

Learning Objective
In their study of
students will use what they have learned to

and share the results using a
Students will watch a short video about the structural layers of the earth. Students will write down each layer and a fact about each layer while watchng the video.
Students will use the information from the video and lecture to create a poem about the structural layers of the earth. Students are able to pick from a concrete or acrostic poem. The students will present their poem to a small group of 4-5 students upon completion.
Students will individually create their own model of the Earth including each structural layer. The students will be required to color code and label each layer within their model.
6th Grade Schience
Teacher will lecture using power point notes, pictures, and short video clips showing the different layers of the earch, what they are composed of, and where they are located
Students will go back to their video notes and add at least three more facts about each structural layer of the earth. Including but not limited to its location and composition.
Using a standard rubric created by the lass and instructor before the students made the models, students will evaluate each of the students models within the class. The models will be numbered and not named.
What is the inner core of the Earth made of?

What is the main difference between the inner core and the outer core?

What makes the materials in the core different than those found on the crust? Why are materials found on the crust not found in the core?
