Activity Overview


When introducing the structure of the Earth, a diagram is essential to helping students visually understand each part. In this activity, students will label a model of the Earth. Students should include a description of each part in addition to the label and arrow.

To scaffold this activity for students who need support, provide labels to add to the diagram. To stretch your more advanced students, have them compare the structure of Earth to the structure of another planet in our solar system, like Jupiter.
