This week in Science we will be looking at and making different models of the Earth's structure. We will identify the major layers of the Earth and explore the idea that the theory of plate tectonics accounts for important features of Earth's surface and major geologic events. 

Important vocabulary (including page number from the Science text book):

Core (pg. 191)

Crust (pg. 191)

Mantle (pg. 191)

Lithosphere (pg. 191)

Asthenosphere (pg. 191)
