http://mocomi.com/ presents: Structure of the Earth

The Earth's structure is very similar to that of an egg, with the outer crust, inner mantle and central core.

The Earth’s structure consists of three parts, the crust, mantle and core. The crust is on the outside, while the mantle is in the middle and the core is the innermost section. The core is divided into two parts, the inner core and the outer core.

The structure of the Earth is similar to that of an egg. The Earth’s crust is like the shell of an egg, its mantle is like egg white and the core is like yolk.

The Crust - The crust is found beneath mountain ranges and can be as thick as 40 kilometres. However, the Earth’s crust under oceans is only about 8 kilometres thick.

The Mantle - Parts of the Earth’s mantle are made up of hot rock, so they melted. This molten rock seeps through cracks in the crust and pours out of volcanoes. This is called lava. When the lava cools down, it turns into stone.

The Core - Scientists believe that the Earth’s core is mostly made up of iron. They feel that the inner core is solid while the outer core is in a liquid state.
