The Atmosphere Comic Strip activity is designed to reinforce the information related to the Earth’s atmosphere. Students are prompted to design a comic strip which incorporates the 5 layers of the atmosphere (troposphere, stratosphere, mesosphere, thermosphere, and exosphere). Also included is a grading rubric and a handout with descriptions of each of the atmospheric layers (optional handout for students). This activity is a fun way to check for content understanding. This activity may be used in 5th – 8th grade (depending on state standards as to when this content is presented).
