PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This lab is a FUN combination of both science and math providing students with a cooperative group lab opportunity. Students set up their atmospheric cross section graph by labeling their x and y axes as instructed. Students then plot temperature versus altitude and make the correlation between temperature behaviors and trends with how the Earth's atmospheric layers are differentiated. When graphing is complete, students use this graphed data to separate layers. Students add the finishing touches by coloring the cross section, making a key, and pasting the appropriate objects into their respective atmospheric layer. Conclusion questions are provided at the end with great enrichment or extra credit opportunity. A completed graph is provided at the end. This has been used in college prep and honors classes within general science and earth and space science from grade levels 5 - 9.

This activity has been used in all levels: special education to advanced learners (even honors).

A great addition to your meteorology teaching library.

Applicable to many state science assessments and benchmarks.

Has been applied to state mandated North Carolina end of year tests for science in grades 5 and 8.

Even used by teachers in New York State as a preparation for the Earth Science Grade 9 Regents Exam.
