# What is the temperature of the 4 layers of the Earth?

## What is the temperature of the 4 layers of the Earth?

The Upper Mantle is much stronger than the asthenosphere at about 500-900°C, and the Lower Mantle is denser and hotter, reaching temperatures over 4,000°C. Finally, the Core is the hottest at about 5,000°C, being the most “gooey” of the layers.

What food can be used to illustrate the layers of Earth?

Ice cream, peanut butter or melted marshmallows with puffed-rice cereal can all work for the mantle layer of your project. Push a hard candy representing both the inner core and outer core into a ball of ice cream, or spoon a layer of ice cream into a clear plastic cup over the top of the inner and outer core.

### What is the correct order of the layers from hottest to coolest?

The Earth’s layers from coolest to hottest are: crust, mantle, outer core, and inner core.

What is the temperature of the crust mantle and core?

The temperature of the mantle varies greatly, from 1000° Celsius (1832° Fahrenheit) near its boundary with the crust, to 3700° Celsius (6692° Fahrenheit) near its boundary with the core.

#### What fruit can represent Earth?

kiwi fruit
The Earth is made up of four layers. It might help to imagine the Earth as a kiwi fruit. The outer layer is the Earth’s crust (represented by the kiwi’s skin).

What fruit can model Earth’s structure?

The peach/plum will serve as the model for examining the Earth’s interior. Have students handle the globe, touching the surface, and tell them that the surface of the Earth that we can touch and see on the outside is called the “crust”.

## What is the temp of the mantle?

The temperature of the mantle varies greatly, from 1000° Celsius (1832° Fahrenheit) near its boundary with the crust, to 3700° Celsius (6692° Fahrenheit) near its boundary with the core. In the mantle, heat and pressure generally increase with depth.

What are the temperature of the inner and outer core?
