If you’re looking for a way to teach students about the ozone layer without lecturing at them, this activity is what you need. I use it in my general-level Environmental Science class (mixed 10th-12th graders).  

Students study images and linked figures to learn about the ozone layer, CFCs, and the ozone hole. I have this set up for students to work in groups- I have students in groups of three or four work through this document together. 

There are various checkpoints- at the first checkpoint, I check the information as an entire class (I call on groups to share answers and we discuss what everyone has). At the second checkpoint, I check each individual group (rather than the whole class) when they reach the checkpoint. Once they pass the second checkpoint, each individual group works to complete the third section for accuracy (I allow them to have me pre-check it if they want). When they finish, they turn the activity in to Classroom. 

I have each student fill out their own sheet, but I only grade one per group, randomly selected. This helps ensure that everyone is doing what they are supposed to (and they know that this is how I grade ahead of time- it helps them keep each other accountable).

This is ready to drop right into Classroom or Schoology! Answer key included.

This takes my students anywhere between 30-45 minutes (we have 45 minute class periods). Some groups work faster than others, so you might want a second activity ready to go for fast groups (or they could work on a homework assignment).

Use a computational representation to illustrate the relationships among Earth systems and how those relationships are being modified due to human activity. Examples of Earth systems to be considered are the hydrosphere, atmosphere, cryosphere, geosphere, and/or biosphere. An example of the far-reaching impacts from a human activity is how an increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide results in an increase in photosynthetic biomass on land and an increase in ocean acidification, with resulting impacts on sea organism health and marine populations. Assessment does not include running computational representations but is limited to using the published results of scientific computational models.
