Why is a ping-pong ball a good model for the
Earth’s shape and texture?
Earth is extremely round/spherical and smooth.
Is Earth a perfect sphere?
Is Earth a perfect sphere?
No!
Earth is a little bit wider than it is tall.
True or false: Earth looks like a perfect sphere
from space.
True or false: Earth looks like a perfect sphere
from space.
True! Earth is so close to a perfect sphere that
the difference cannot be seen from space.
What is the name for Earth’s shape?
What is the name for Earth’s shape?

List/identify as many of the six (6) pieces of
evidence for Earth’s round/spherical shape.
Also, which is best?
Earth’s ________
shadow on Moon (during lunar eclipse) is curved.
Ships ___________________________________________

Earth has a different layers with different
densities. Is the surface layer the least or most
dense of these? What is the name of this outer
layer?
Earth has a different layers with different
densities. Is the surface layer the least or most
dense of these? What is the name of this outer
layer?
The surface layer is the least dense and is called
the lithosphere (or crust – although not exactly
the same).
On what page in the ESRT’s is the diagram of
Earth’s interior found?
Based on this graph, how do temperature and
pressure change as you go towards earth’s
center.
On what page in the ESRT’s is the diagram of
Earth’s interior found?
Page 10
Based on this graph, how do temperature and
pressure change as you go towards earth’s
center.
Temperature and pressure both increase towards
Earth’s center.
Which layer causes the plates to move around?
Why?
Convection in the Earth layer known as the
asthenosphere causes the shifting of the plates.
Name the two (2) types of crust and the rock of
Which type of crust is thicker?
Name the two (2) types of crust and the rock of
Continental and oceanic crust.
Which type of crust is thicker?
The crust is thickest under the continents.

What is the elevation of the indicated (?) contour
line?
?

line?
Understanding depressions
RULE: First (outermost) depression contour has same elevation as closest regular
