We have been learning about the layers of the Earth and I wanted to introduce the children to an extension activity. The only problem was that I didn’t make it to the copy store before the day I planned to show the lesson. A solution was found in my recycling bin at home!

|Here, the lesson is set up along with a model from our Science shelf.|
|It has been quite a popular activity since introducing it the children. I have also enjoyed listening to their conversations about the different layers and how the “inner core is the hottest place on the planet!”|
