Science is a very engaging subject by the very nature of its content.
But sometimes finding a way to engage younger students with more advanced scientific ideas can be challenging.
This lesson takes the higher-level concept of the earth's atmosphere and breaks it down into a simple lesson, that even a second or third grader can understand!
This lesson plan was designed as part of a New York State S.T.E.M. project and fits into a larger unit on "Weather".
This set includes a full 2-3 day lesson plan with: step-by step procedures, materials list, ideas for assessment, internet resources, a visual diagram, etc.
This lesson was written to meet all requirements for N.G.S.S. and Common Core Standards.
