Layers of the Earth

Today we have been learning about the different layers of the Earth.

Here are some facts that we can remember,

They are the crust, the mantle, the inner core and the outer core.  (Tia)

The inner core is 5000 degrees! (Lucy)

You cannot dig down to it. (Max)

The centre of the Earth has iron in it. (Finn)

Even if it was possible it would take a very long time to dig down to the centre. (Szymon)

The magma comes out of the mantle in a volcano. (Ollie)

What else would you like to know?

  1. The Earth is made up of different layers, just like an apple
    Each layer you peel there is another one.
    The Earth is made up of three layers.
    There is the Crust, which is the first layer of the Earth.
    It Is the part we usually see.
    The Crust, is a solid layer and it has all the life exists including us, nature,
    countries, animals, mountains, sea and soil.
    The second part of the Earth is the Mantle, which is also known as magma.
    The Mantle is about 2,900km thick and amazingly it makes up 85% of the Earth’s
    weight, Wow!
    It is made from molten or melted iron minerals and other semi-solid rocks that will still float under pressure.
    The third layer is known as the Outer core.
    It is a burning hot layer (between 4,500 and 5,500 degrees) which is liquid layer.
    It is made from iron and nickel.
    Finally there is the inner core, which if it was possible you would have to dig your whole life and you still would not be able to dig down to the inner core.
    The Earth’s inner core is a huge metal ball, mainly made from iron.
    The inner core is scorching enough making the metal melt!
    The layer is solid, even though it is really hot, because of the incredible pressure surrounding it.

  2. WOW! I am amazed with all the facts that you have learnt about the earths layers and volcanoes and didn’t know any of them so you have taught me something new!

    Plus does any other rocks (from down below) from the earths layers or volcanoes?
