The Earth's Structure
My name is Kim Allen and I'm a second grade teacher at Augusta Prepratory
Day School and this web page lesson helps teach my second graders the layers
of the earth.
The structure of the earth is made up of three layers. The crust,
mantle, and core (inner core and outer core). The crust
is the Earth's cool outer layer of mostly solid rock, the mantle is
the Earth's vast middle layer, and the core is the Earth's super-hot center-the
outer core is liquid and the inner core is solid.
