Today we had a quick demo with cornstarch and water. You can try this at home: wet some corn starch in your hand. Squeeze and apply pressure and you will feel that it turns into a solid! When you let go, it will turn into a liquid. This models what the inner core does since it is solid.
We also took our Unit 4 Quiz 1 on the layers of the earth and watched Bill Nye.
