Create Earth Layers Model

Jump to Comments

The Earth might seem like one hard ball of rock, but it is made up of different layers. Here’s a look at the layers that make up our solid Earth.

This extra credit opportunity allows students to have the opportunity to recreate Earths layers using your creative juices.  Some of use are architects, some of us are artists, some of us are future movie makers.

  • Hi Ms. DuBose:

    I had a great time doing this project. It was fun and “tasty”. I spend quality time with my Dad in doing this project.

    I cannot wait to do some more projects.

    Hey Jake

    I am glad you and your dad enjoyed this project. Don’t forget your research chart..See you tomorrow

  • I like that we can do extra credit to bump up our grade a little. It gives us kids the oppertunity we have to do work that we can’t do normally! And, It gives more of a challenge to us that are higher up on stuff than others. Also, It is cool that we have a multiple choice group of stuff that we can do!
