Earth Science Unit – Layers of the Earth, Types of Volcanoes

Earth Science Unit - Layers of the Earth Activities Types of Volcanoes Worksheets - Interactive Notebook PagesWhew! Our Earth Science continues to grow!  I wanted to let you know that I have added about 15 or so new pages to the Earth Science unit.

Layers of the Earth interactive notebook page- Earth Science UnitIn the section on the Layers of the Earth, I added in a new interactive notebook activity. Kids will create their own flap-book notebook page. There is an option for color or for black & white.  On the bottom part of that page, there is information about the compositional layers (crust, mantle, core) and the five physical layers (lithosphere, asthenosphere, mesosphere, etc.).  If your kids are older, there is a plain notebook page (without making the flap book).

There is a second activity option, an interactive notebook set about the Layers of the Earth:

Types of Volcanoes Pages:

Types of Volcanoes Worksheets and Interactive Notebook PagesI also added a number of pages about the types of volcanoes.

There is a cut-and-paste activity, where students learn about the different types of volcanoes: composite volcanoes, cinder cone volcanoes, shield volcanoes and fissure volcanoes.  Students cut out the description of each volcano and paste it onto the notebook page. (Older students can just write that information in!)

There is also a new flap-book activity on the types of volcanoes.  Students color in the outside and inside of the types of volcanoes and glue the outside of the volcano on top of the inside notebook page:
