Memory Nostalgia: A Fond Moment In Science

We all have special moments in our lives that we randomly think about out of the blue, sometimes it’s stuff that happened yesterday, a couple weeks ago or even when we were kids depending on your age now, if you’re still a kid you’ll have those moments come to you later, but if you’ve been around a good while than you probably already have a few, one of my favorite and fond moments that I had as a kid happened back in middle school (about 8th grade i’d say…yeah it was 8th grade) I was in science class and in this class we had to make a clay model of all the layers of the Earth’s core, now don’t ask me if I remember all the layers, I only remember the mantel and core that’s it, trust me I tried to remember each part without looking it up just to see if I could remember it, but i’m probably going to to have to surrender and look it up, maybe after this post or before whichever comes first!!

Back to Science class…we had a project where we had to make a clay version of the Earth and in then cut it in half to then label each layer of the Earth, it was a pretty simple, but also really cool project, I loved it, then again I just loved Science as a whole, it was one of my favorites subjects, probably already mentioned it before, but it really was, don’t know why, but I just really liked it!! I think if I remember the project was actually a test not a regular project, but it’s been a long while so I can’t actually remember which one it was all I remember was we had to make the Earth out of clay and then label the layers on the inside, I remember the colors we used to, well somewhat, there was blue, green, yellow, purple and red I believe, I think we were able to pick our colors,

but I could also be wrong on that….the way we labeled each layer was, we had to write them down on a piece of paper in strips and then tape those paper strips onto some toothpicks and then jab them into the clay, but we had to put the names of the layers in the correct place, now that i’m thinking about it, it might’ve been a test because we got graded on it…..but again I don’t know, it was really fun, I remember being really excited about doing that project, rolling the clay and turning it into a ball and having it cut to see all the different colors that were inside, I can’t speak for everyone in my class on whether they found it exciting as well, but young me was loving it!! I can picture it now doing that project, moments of it anyway, I remember the classroom too a bit and how the weather was, by that I mean I remember it being sunny, I don’t know if it was cold or hot, just that the sun was out.

It was good bring back moment, it’s one of my top fondest memories that happened to pop up out of nowhere, but every time it comes up, it brings a smile on my face and makes me happy, I guess it just one of those things that’ll stick with me for as long as it chooses to and i’m perfectly fine with it!!

P.S. I just looked up each layer…… and I gotta say, a little disappointed that I didn’t remember each part because it was quite simple, literally you got the outer core, inner core, mantle and the core of the Earth…how could someone forget that…..at least i’ll remember it now so I guess it’s okay ha

All The Love ❤ ❤
