  • Layers of the Earth Intro http://player.discoveryeducation.com/in 8-3.1 dex.cfm?guidAssetId=C1B0E416-A17D- 45B6-875C- 88CCC8403AA7&blnFromSearch=1&prod uctcode=US
  • VIW’s1. Crust2. Mantle3. Core4. Density5. Composition6. Lithosphere7. Asthenosphere8. Oceanic crust – basalt9. Continental crust - granite
  • Learning Objectives8-3 The student will demonstrate an understanding of materials that determine the structure of the Earth and the processes that have altered this structure.8-3.1 Summarize the three layers of Earth – crust, mantle, and core – on the basis of relative position, density, and composition.
  • Essential Information• The Earth has layers that have specific conditions (states) and composition (made up of).
  • Summary of Earth’s LayersCopy Table into Notebook Layer Relative Position Density Composition Crust Outermost layer; thinnest under the ocean, thickest under continents; crust and top of mantle called the lithosphere Mantle Core
  • Summary of Earth’s LayersCopy Table into Notebook Layer Relative Position Density Composition Crust Outermost layer; thinnest under the ocean, thickest under continents; crust and top of mantle called the lithosphere Mantle Middle layer, thickest layer; top portion called the asthenosphere Core
  • Summary of Earth’s LayersCopy Table into Notebook Layer Relative Position Density Composition Crust Outermost layer; thinnest under the ocean, thickest under continents; crust and top of mantle called the lithosphere Mantle Middle layer, thickest layer; top portion called the asthenosphere Core Inner layer, consists of two parts – outer core and inner core
  • Summary of Earth’s LayersCopy Table into Notebook Layer Relative Position Density Composition Crust Outermost layer; Least dense layer thinnest under the overall; Oceanic ocean, thickest crust (basalt) is under continents; more dense than crust and top of continental crust mantle called the (granite) lithosphere Mantle Middle layer, thickest layer; top portion called the asthenosphere Core Inner layer, consists of two parts – outer core and inner core
  • Summary of Earth’s LayersCopy Table into Notebook Layer Relative Position Density Composition Crust Outermost layer; Least dense layer thinnest under the overall; Oceanic ocean, thickest crust (basalt) is under continents; more dense than crust and top of continental crust mantle called the (granite) lithosphere Mantle Middle layer, Density increases thickest layer; top with depth because portion called the of increasing asthenosphere pressure Core Inner layer, consists of two parts – outer core and inner core
  • Summary of Earth’s LayersCopy Table into Notebook Layer Relative Position Density Composition Crust Outermost layer; Least dense layer thinnest under the overall; Oceanic ocean, thickest crust (basalt) is under continents; more dense than crust and top of continental crust mantle called the (granite) lithosphere Mantle Middle layer, Density increases thickest layer; top with depth because portion called the of increasing asthenosphere pressure Core Inner layer, consists Heaviest material; of two parts – outer most dense layer core and inner core
  • Summary of Earth’s LayersCopy Table into Notebook Layer Relative Position Density Composition Crust Outermost layer; Least dense layer Solid Rock – mostly thinnest under the overall; Oceanic silicon and oxygen ocean, thickest crust (basalt) is Oceanic crust – under continents; more dense than basalt; crust and top of continental crust Continental crust – mantle called the (granite) granite lithosphere Mantle Middle layer, Density increases thickest layer; top with depth because portion called the of increasing asthenosphere pressure Core Inner layer, consists Heaviest material; of two parts – outer most dense layer core and inner core
  • Summary of Earth’s LayersCopy Table into Notebook Layer Relative Position Density Composition Crust Outermost layer; Least dense layer Solid Rock – mostly thinnest under the overall; Oceanic silicon and oxygen ocean, thickest crust (basalt) is Oceanic crust – under continents; more dense than basalt; crust and top of continental crust Continental crust – mantle called the (granite) granite lithosphere Mantle Middle layer, Density increases Hot softened rock; thickest layer; top with depth because contains iron and portion called the of increasing magnesium asthenosphere pressure Core Inner layer, consists Heaviest material; of two parts – outer most dense layer core and inner core
  • Summary of Earth’s LayersCopy Table into Notebook Layer Relative Position Density Composition Crust Outermost layer; Least dense layer Solid Rock – mostly thinnest under the overall; Oceanic silicon and oxygen ocean, thickest crust (basalt) is Oceanic crust – under continents; more dense than basalt; crust and top of continental crust Continental crust – mantle called the (granite) granite lithosphere Mantle Middle layer, Density increases Hot softened rock; thickest layer; top with depth because contains iron and portion called the of increasing magnesium asthenosphere pressure Core Inner layer, consists Heaviest material; Mostly iron and of two parts – outer most dense layer nickel; outer core – core and inner core slow flowing liquid, inner core, solid
  • How can you use your hands to remember the layers of the Earth?
  • Draw and label all 3 layers of the Earth
  • • Outermost layer; thinnest under the ocean, thickest under continents; contains the lithosphere
  • • Middle layer, thickest layer; top portion called the asthenosphere
  • • Inner layer, consists of two parts
  • • Heaviest material; most dense layer
  • • Density increases with depth because of increasing pressure
  • • Least dense layer overall; Oceanic crust (basalt) is more dense than continental crust (granite)
  • • Hot softened rock; contains iron and magnesium
  • • Solid Rock – mostly silicon and oxygen• Oceanic basalt• Continental granite
  • • Mostly iron and nickel; outer slow flowing liquid, inner part, solid
  • Solid Rock – mostlysilicon and oxygenOceanic crust – basalt;Continental crust –graniteHot softened rock;contains iron andmagnesiumMostly iron and nickel;outer core – slow flowingliquid, inner core, solid
  • Layers of the Earth ProjectDirections:1. Accurately label the layers of the Earth – Include the relative position – Density – composition2. Include at least 3 major features for each Earth layer
  • M&M Earth’s
  • The lithosphere is a "rocky“ rigid outermost shell of a rocky planet.On Earth, it comprises the crust and the portion of the upper mantlethat behaves elastically on time scales of thousands of years or more.
  • Asthenosphere - is a portion of the upper mantle just below the lithosphere thatis involved in plate tectonic movements. The asthenosphere is a highly viscous,mechanically weak deforming region, but pressures keeps it like a thick soupyplastic. The Asthenosphere has a relatively low density so Seismic waves passrelatively slowly through the asthenosphere compared to the overlyinglithosphere.

  • • The chart below shows data about the Earths layers.What information can be concluded from the information in the chart?A. The temperature of the earth increases as you go deeper into the earthB. The density of the earth gets greater as you go deeper into the earthC. The temperature of the earth decreases as you go deeper into the earthD. The density of the earth decreases as you go deeper into the earth
  • Use the table below to answer the following question:The table above describes the layers of the Earth. Which of the following correctly labels these layers? A. Layer A = Core ; Layer B = Crust ; Layer C = Mantle B. Layer A = Mantle ; Layer B = Core ; Layer C = Crust C. Layer A = Core ; Layer B = Mantle ; Layer C = Crust D. Layer A = Crust ; Layer B = Mantle ; Layer C = Core
