ROCKCLIFFE CE PRIMARY SCHOOL

Discovering the structure of Earth

In Geography, we peeled away the layers of Earth to explore what lies beneath our feet.  Earth consists of four concentric layers; the crust, the mantle, the outer core and the inner core.  Using their underdstanding of this, children created their own planet Earth using playdoh!  We cut each model in half to expose the layers. Children then labelled their models with key facts including temperatures, depth and composition.
