Layers Of The Earth!!!

WALT(we are learning to...) make a model of the earth out of play- dough.

Why are we learning this?
So that when we learn about Natural Disasters we can use our knowledge of the layers to understand them better!

What other subjects at school can this help with?
This can help in topic and science and learn about the earth around us and the layers.

Crust (seven tectonic plates):
Did you know that the crust is made up of the tectonic plates which there are seven in the whole of the world! Another thing to hear about is that it contains continents and seas. It is 15-75km thick.

Mantle(upper mantle and the lower mantle):
Did you know that there are 2 parts of the mantle and those 2 mantles are the upper mantle and the lower mantle. Did you know that the upper mantle is 400km thick and it would take days and days to dig through the earth. Are you aware that the lower mantle is 2300km thick. The lower mantle is made out of iron and magnesium. It is more dense than the upper mantle. The upper mantle is made out of silicates.

Outer Core(liquid):
Did you know that the outer core is 2300km thick. Are you aware that it is made out of liquid and sulphur... It is also made out of nickel.

Inner Core (solid):
Did you know that the inner core is made out of sulphur just like the outer core. It is also made out of iron and nickel. The inner core is solid. The temperature is 6650 degrees.

City Description

Wednesday 8th June, 2011

As my airplane stopped I was happy and very, very , very excited to meet new people. I quickly jumped out and hopped into my shiny limo.
Unbelievably I...

Saw...

...traffic jams and business workers rushing to work because they were 5 hours late. I could also see humongous and tall buildings as if they were all as tall as a fat giraffe.

Smelt...

...the goodness coming through my skin and the perfume that came from the pretty shops as pretty as Cinderella. I could also smell the french fries being cooked at restaurants. I could smell the popcorn coming from the movies as the people walked out and I could smell the grape hubba-bubba.

Heard...

...my stomach rumbling. Getting hungry so I went to MacDonald's. As I walked through the door I could hear Jay-Z booming through the speakers on the wall. I could hear people arguing as I walked to the counter and babies screaming their heads off as if they were all sick. As I ate my burger I could also hear mixtures of different languages being spoken by people who were visiting just like me!

As my adventure started to get boring and more boring and even more boring, I thought that it might be time to go back home and tell my parents and my class all about my trip to New York. So I went back to my hotel, got my things, got my ticket and went to the airport. While I was waiting I heard a lady say “ Last plane to New Zealand is leaving in 10 minutes!” I quickly ran with my bag, hopped onto my plane and while it was taking off, I got the butterflies. I looked out the window and waved goodbye to New York and the beautiful bright lights.
