Earth Worksheets

Earth, our home planet, has a surface that is like a giant jigsaw puzzle whose pieces are in constant motion. What keeps these giant tectonic plates moving? How do wind, ice, and water steadily change the landforms we see on Earth's crust? What is inside of Earth? This section about our home planet will answer these questions, and more! The variety of reading levels will help differentiate science content instruction for different levels of readers and build vocabulary and spelling skills with activities using content words.
