The structure of the earth

The structure of the earth is made up of three parts: the core, mantle and crust. The centre of the earth is the core, which is surrounded by a layer called the mantle. The top layer of the earth is the crust.

There are 3 main structures of the earth, the core which is as hot as the surface of the sun, then the mantle which is 70% of the earths structure and the crust which is the ground we stand on, an average of 30km thick
The crust from a slice of bread is surrounding a mantelpiece (mantle) whilst an apple core burns underneath.
