Is your knowledge about the Earth’s layers rock solid? Create a down-to-Earth 3-D display with Crayola Markers.
People have only journeyed 1/500 of the way to the center of the Earth. That’s about 13 km (8 miles) down, where it’s really hot. Geologists have discovered a lot about the layers that lie below the surface. What can you find out? Here’s one way to show what you’re learning about geology.
With an adult, locate a good-sized rock that could represent a slice of Earth. Wash and dry the rock. (If rocks are not available, cover an armature of crumpled newspaper with Crayola Model Magic® to make a replica. Air-dry the sculpture.)
Write on the rock with Crayola Markers to divide it into three main layers: crust, mantle, and core. Color code each one. Then mark each sub-layer. Illustrate unique characteristics, such as the amount of heat or geologic activity found within that layer.
With Crayola Scissors, cut small triangles from recycled file folders for labels. Write the name of each layer. Outline each triangle with the color(s) used in your key.
Roll a small ball of Model Magic for each label. Flatten the ball on the rock. Stick a label point into the ball. Secure the ball on the rock with Crayola School Glue. Air-dry your rock-solid project.
