Summary:This classroom lecture presents a simple conceptual model of the relative thicknesses of the Lithosphere by measuring a simple hard-boiled egg. The hard-boiled egg is used as a scale model for the zones of the Earth. The shell is to the egg as the lithosphere is to the Earth. This demonstration highlights the idea that the lithosphere is a thin shell.
