6th Grade Science’s Journey to the Center of the Earth!

The 6th grade science students are finishing up their introduction into Earth Science this week after studying the spheres of the earth and the layers of the earth over the past couple weeks. Students participated in many critical thinking concepts, focusing on the two questions: “What is inside our earth/Could we dig to the center of the earth?” and “What are the layers that make up our earth?”. During this time, we created a model of the earth on a small sphere. The students had to incorporate math to figure out the scale of the earth and the layers to the sphere they were given. The models turned out great! Students also spent a day using their creative side making a ‘graffiti wall’ where they expressed why it is important to know the layers of the earth. The 6th grade is looking forward to getting out of this world and leaping into the atmosphere next!
