To start our new topic in Year three about the extremes of Earth, we first learnt the structure of the planet.

Using plasticine we created models, starting with the very hot, solid inner core in red. Next we added yellow to represent the liquid outer core. The mantle was created in orange to look like magma. Then we added a thin crust using blue and green to represent the land and oceans.

The fun part was cutting our model Earth’s in half to reveal the layers.

Great job Year Three!
