Introduction to Earth's Atmosphere
This is a print and go lesson. It is an introduction to the Earth's atmosphere. This is not a full day's lesson plan, but is intended to take approximately 15-20 minutes. This lesson is best followed by my 2-day lesson plan on Building the Layers of the Atmosphere.
This resource includes 6 posters (which also make a colorful bulletin board display to which you could add your Layers of the Atmosphere). A foldable is included and has fill-in the blank notes inside. Students read the posters, which you have posted around your room, and fill in their foldable. Read through as a class after they're filled in. Upper elementary and middle school kiddos love this type of introduction. Enjoy!
