Patrons learn about what's under Earth's crust by creating a fan with colors that represent the four layers of Earth. Turn this into a "Take & Make" activity by providing the materials (3 copies of the Earth Fan worksheet, a glue stick, and 2 jumbo popsicles per patron) and a print-out of the instructions.
|Hints for uses in your library||"Take & Make" tip: include a short print-out of the Earth's layers information located at the beginning of the activity so patrons can learn while making their craft.|
