The lesson starts with a definition of a system and examples of simple systems on Earth. Then students complete a card sort and focused reading to learn about Earth’s spheres: Atmosphere, Biosphere, Geosphere, and Hydrosphere and how they interact with each other. The lesson ends with an exit ticket where students demonstrate their understanding of a system.
