Layers of the Earth.

Need a new way to look at the layers of the Earth?!
Try using a slice of an apple!

As you can see, we labeled the inner core, outer core, mantle, and crust.
The kids were super engaged and it is a great way to formatively assess my kids' understanding!

*Wouldn't recommend giving the little ones pokey push pins :) :) 
This might be better 2nd and up, in small groups, or at your teacher table.
I wanted to share the idea here so I didn't forget! Haha!

Have a blessed Sunday, teacher friends!


  1. Fun :) we did Earth's layers using peanut m&ms :) but this is much healthier!

  2. Ummm YUM! That sounds so much more delicious! :) :)
