A Peek Inside Our Planet
By placing the cursor on a part of this interactive model of the Earth, students can get information about that part. This includes the inner and outer core, the mantle, crust, and atmosphere. There is also a section called More Earth Fun with four activities. The first is a set of instructions to make an edible Earth. The second contains an Earth time line and the third is a quiz about matching a change to its agent. The last of the Fun sections provides some cool earth facts.
