Earth's Layers

Part of Planet Earth Week

Today we are going to learn about Earths layers.

Have you heard the term “Journey to the Centre of the Earth” ask your family about it - there have been several films made with this title!

The possibility of travelling to the centre of the earth is just for science fiction films but scientists can give us an excellent idea of what the layers of our planet are made up of and how they behave by looking at earthquakes of all things!

Did you know: By studying rocks and meteorites (rocks from space) scientists believe the Earth is about 4.5 billion years old!
