Lesson 1

Lesson 1:

Today in Geography, we are learning if we can dig a hole through the Earth! 

Firstly, work through the PDF slides to consider what you know and what you want to find out. 


Watch this video to find out about the layers of the Earth and how this might answer our Big Question "Can we dig a hole through the Earth?". 


Once you've watched the video, make a 3D diagram of the layers of the earth. You could use some paper and colouring pencils, or maybe even try to show it using playdoh! There are some instructions found here


Finally, Mr Gook still thinks we can dig a hole to the other side of the world. We need to explain to Mr Gook all about Earth. Read the Year 3 example of the Non-Chronological report and use the notes given to write your own fact file for me to share with Mr Gook! You don't just have to use the facts we give you, you could research your own. 


I can't wait to tell Mr Gook whether Year 3 agree or disagree with him. Remember to submit your work and ask for help if you need it.
