Upper mantel
Mantle
Inner core
Continued Below the Earth’s surface
Inner core:
o Made mostly of IRON (Fe)
o Very dense (solid)
o Very hot
Continued Below the Earth’s surface
Mantle:
o Mostly silicate composition
o Most of Earth’s volume
o Mostly solid, but behaves like a liquid
Continued Below the Earth’s surface
Upper Mantle:
o Also called the Asthenosphere
o Similar to Mantle
o Mostly liquid
Continued Below the Earth’s surface
Crust:
o Lithosphere: made up of crust and the asthenosphere
o Composed of different types of rocks

Continued Below the Earth’s surface
On the Test
Igneous Rocks:
o Cooled lava or magma
o Can be intrusive or extrusive
Below or above the surface
Continued Below the Earth’s surface
On the Test
Sedimentary Rocks:
o Deposition of materials into layers (strata)
o Formed by sedimentation
o Particles that form it come from a centre area
Continued Below the Earth’s surface
On the Test
Metamorphic Rocks:
o Original rock under goes change
Pressure and temperature
Continued Below the Earth’s surface
#will be on test
Theory of Plate Tectonics:
o The lithosphere is broken into 8 major plates
Dozens of smaller ones
Movement by different dynamics
o Mantle
o Gravity
