Capas de la Tierra Texto y Preguntas de Comprensión Lectora EN ESPAÑOL

Earth’s Layers Reading IN SPANISH with Worksheet: Students read about Earth’s Layers and answer questions on a worksheet. All the information is included in the text, so no prior knowledge is needed. The text teaches the information and then asks review questions. The reading and questions are at the middle and high school level.

Capas de la Tierra Texto y Preguntas de Comprensión Lectora EN ESPAÑOL: Los estudiantes leen sobre Capas de la Tierra y responden a preguntas en una hoja de trabajo. Toda la información está incluida en el texto, por lo que no se necesita conocimiento previo.  El texto enseña la información y luego hace preguntas de revisión.  La lectura y las preguntas son de nivel de escuela intermedia y secundaria.

In this activity, students will:

  • READ about the layers inside Earth, including their key elements, temperatures, width, and other features. Students will also learn about the basics of how scientists can study them, including using seismic waves and modeling.
  • ANSWER text-dependent questions – no prior knowledge required!

Key Terms Included: crust, tectonic plates, magma, mantle, convection, asthenosphere, lithosphere, inner core, outer core

A Note About the Level of this Article: I have found that Earth’s layers readings are either too elementary or way too advanced for my students. I wrote this for my 7th and 8th grade students studying an NGSS-based curriculum.

This activity pairs beautifully with our Earth’s Layers to Scale Model!
