                                                Earth’s Layers

1. On the diagram of a cross-section of the Earth, label the following labels:
       a. Crust
       b. Inner Core
       c. Outer Core
       d. Asthenosphere
       e. Lithosphere

2. On the diagram, use arrows to show where:
       a. Primary waves travel
       b. Secondary waves travel
       c. Folds are formed
       d. Faults are formed

3. Color:
       a.    The inner core red.
       b.    The outer core orange.
       c.    The asthenosphere green.
       d.    The lithosphere purple.
        e.   The crust blue.
Draw the molecules in each phase of matter.




             Solid                             Liquid                               Gas



Label each layer of the Earth as solid, liquid, or in between. Then draw the molecules to show what
they might look like relative to the other layers.
   Inner Core             Outer Core         Asthenosphere         Lithosphere             Crust
