This is an incredible bundle, which focuses on the following essential question: "How do scientists describe the composition of Earth’s atmosphere?" Included is a 36-slide PowerPoint presentation, which is an excellent tool to introduce the Meteorology Unit. The PowerPoint is split into two, intended to be two separate lessons. The first is an introduction to the atmosphere; the second discusses the layers of the atmosphere.
Topics covered include meteorology, atmosphere, air, particulates, aerosols, atmospheric pressure, density, barometer, temperature, troposphere, stratosphere, mesosphere, thermosphere, (the three pauses), ozone, ozone layer, etc.
Imperative relationships are discussed that occur throughout our atmosphere (i.e. the relationship between temperature and atmospheric pressure). Incredible visuals and examples are provided to broaden the key ideas of this PowerPoint. Additionally, practice questions are provided, which allow students to demonstrate their levels of comprehension.
Also included in this bundle is a detailed lesson plan, a fantastic set of guided notes and a formative assessment which have all been created to accompany this PowerPoint.
