- EE-71-79 = 2.4 - "What do Scientists Know About the Earth's Interior"? = ( D(g/ml) collected meaning class notes)

- EE-80-82 = Density Lab (More to Learn)

- EE-86-87-LS2.5.1 = "What is the Structure of the Earth?"

- OnLine Text PDFs = Its About Time Project Based Inquiry Science

- Select "Everchanging Earth" Text

if no luck, try <RIGHT CLICK> or <CONTROL CLICK> on the link, then select <SAVE LINK AS>, and download the <.PDF> file to your desktop. <DOUBLE LEFT CLICK> the <.PDF> file to launch it in the seperate Adobe Acrobat Reader Application.

Still no joy = download free Acrobat Reader, install, reboot, try above steps again.

SCALE CROSS SECTIONAL MAP OF EARTH'S LAYERS
that fits on a standard 8.5" x 11" PAPER.
Don't try to get you map all the way to the edge of the paper . . .

YOU MUST USE A DIAMETER OF 20cm ON YOUR PAPER, AND USE ONLY METRICS (Km, mm, g/cc, C). at specific locations.

SHOW YOUR COMPLETE CALCULATIONS on the back of your map (how you calculated your scale, & how you calculated map distance for every layer), and put the map scale you used on the front side, bottom right corner of your paper.

DO NOT compare your effort to Bennies!

You must draw the depth / thickness to scale of (mm : Km) and lable your map with the following information for credit:

start cross sectional map with:
a) outer boundary of Earth's surface
b) scale calculations
c) one additional layer - either core-up or surface-down

(done = p1 + p2 + p3 + p4)

Next, add remaining of all 5 layers, and start adding temperature and density ranges.

(done = p1 + p2 + p3 + p4)

Finally, complete your lables for each layer of your model:
1) real life thicknesses (Km)
2) scaled thicknesses (mm)
3) density ranges top to bottom for each layer (g/cc)
4) temperature ranges top & bottom for each layer (C)


CHECKLIST OF ITEMS ON YOUR SCALE MODEL EARTH CROSS SECTION =
(
105 test points {35 items x 3pts. ea.})
Thickness, or cord distance in Kilometers, and scale distance on the map in mm, of:
1) Crust
2) Lithosphere
3) Mantle
4) Outer Core

& the radius of the:

5) Inner Core
6) Composition / materials present / chemistry for each layer
7) Location of Hi/Lo Temperature for each layer (in degrees Celcius)
8) Location of Hi/Lo Density for each layer
(in g/cc = g/ml = g/cm^3)

9) FUNCTION of each layer in creating and maintaining the surface environment on Earth - geo-hydro-atmo-bio-spheres.

2016 Test Run in class:
1) HomeWork & 7am help available (not required)
2) Open Notes / Internet / Text
3) Work in LabQuads
4) When in doubt, ask Mr.J. in class
5) Each person is exclusively responsible for their own learning / product.
