A cut-away illustration of Earth's interior. At the heart of our planet lies a solid iron ball, about as hot as the surface of the sun. Cut-away Diagram of Earth's Interior | NASA

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Structure_of_the_Earth

The structure of Earth can be defined in two ways: by mechanical properties such as rheology, or chemically.Mechanically, it can be divided into lithosphere, asthenosphere, mesospheric mantle, outer core, and the inner core.Chemically, Earth can be divided into the crust, upper mantle, lower mantle, outer core, and inner core.

What are the known layers of the Earth based on composition? on response to stress? What is the difference between a layer based on composition vs. response to stress? In the context of rocks, what does the word "stress" refer to? Which layer is a subset of the other - crust or lithosphere?

Earth's Structure What's inside the earth? In the early part of the 20th century, geologists studied the vibrations (seismic waves) generated by earthquakes to learn more about the structure of the earth's interior. They discovered that it is made up of these distinct layers: the crust, the mantle, and the core.

In the previous lesson, the children learned about models and how they have parts that work together to represent the whole.I had explained each of the layers of the Earth to the children. In this lesson, they get to make their very own simplistic model. Yesterday we made a model of the Earth.

Read the definitions, then label the diagram below. crust - the rigid, rocky outer surface of the Earth, composed mostly of basalt and granite. The crust is thinner under the oceans. inner core - the solid iron-nickel center of the Earth that is very hot and under great pressure. mantle - a rocky ...

Earth Diagram Read the definitions, and then label the diagram. Definitions crust - the rigid, rocky outer surface of the Earth, composed mostly of basalt and granite. The crust is thinner under the oceans. Lithosphere: Is made up of the Crust and the uppermost part of the mantle. Has a rigid outer layer that is broken into 30 sections or plates

Diagram of the layers within Earth's atmosphere. Troposphere The troposphere starts at the Earth's surface and extends 8 to 14.5 kilometers high (5 to 9 miles). This part of the atmosphere is the most dense. Almost all weather is in this region. Stratosphere The stratosphere starts just above the troposphere and extends to 50 kilometers (31 ...
