Purpose: Make a 3D Model of the layers of the earth
Materials: Be Creative! Recycled materials and other ideas are (cloth, paper mache, plastic bottles, etc…) encouraged to reduce cost and get extra credit. Common materials: Styrofoam ball, toothpicks, paper, and paint. ***If you need help getting materials or making the project YOU must speak with Mrs. Burch BEFORE Friday! A. 3D MODEL:
10pts Extra Credit: will be given for creating a fully recyclable project.
The Descriptions Key must be an attached piece of the Project that includes a full description of the 4 main layers of the Earth. This can be a cardboard chart, index cards, Ribbon attached to the model, or some other creative idea for describing each layer. A plain paper key will not be acceptable.
Descriptions of the 4 MAIN Layers should include:
Distance across (thickness)
State of Matter: Solid, Liquid, or Semi-plastic
Composition (What materials is it made of?)
A short creative story about traveling to the center of the earth. Start on the Crust and describe your journey as you travel through each layer. What do you see? How do you feel? This story should be a part of your project so that people can follow your journey through your diagram. This story should be as factual as possible. Base your story on class notes and homework. Story must be typed or neatly written.
