Creativity in Year 3 Science

As part of Year 3’s study of rocks and soil the children have been finding out about the three different types of rock and how they are formed. This has included finding out about the structure of the Earth.
In order to assess the children’s learning they were given different coloured playdough and asked to make a model of the Earths structure.  The aim being to demonstrate their learning to describe the internal structure of the earth in simple terms.
Working in pairs and following a lot of scientific discussion all the children completed the task successfully, producing a rainbow selection of models of the five distinct layers of the Earth. These include the inner core, the outer core, the lower mantel, the upper mantle and the crust.
