Product Description

This environmental science lesson introduces students to the four spheres of the earth: hydrosphere, atmosphere, lithosphere (or geosphere), and biosphere.

Items included in this product:

1. Teacher lesson plan with links to websites for content

2. Discussion questions coinciding with web-quest

3. Outdoor activity in which students classify found items into 1 of the 4 "spheres"

4. Assessment in which students create a concept map using vocabulary from the web-quest

NGSS Standards addressed: HS-ESS3-6

Now updated to include digital pages and a short PowerPoint.

This lesson is designed to facilitate independent learning and is ideal for a sub plan or simply to encourage self-instruction of basic concepts. If independent learning isn't your goal, it still fits perfectly into a teacher-directed curriculum.

This lesson is the introduction to my Environmental Science Series. These lessons are designed for a flipped classroom, but are easily adapted for any science teacher interested in a hands-on, project-based approach to learning.

My Environmental Science Series includes lessons for each sphere of the earth:

1. Environmental Science: Atmosphere Bundle

2. Environmental Science: Biosphere Bundle

3. Environmental Science: Lithosphere Bundle

4. Environmental Science: Hydrosphere Bundle

Ready to spend more time practicing concepts, doing activities and labs with your class and less time droning on about vocabulary and basic ideas? So are your students! Start flipping your classroom!

What's a flipped classroom?

In a flipped science classroom, students independently gain vocabulary and basic concepts through internet webquests and videos. Then, in a teacher-guided lab activity, students are able to practice these concepts and see them come to life in real environments.

But I don't have a flipped classroom. Can I still use this product?

Absolutely! Your students can just do the independent learning and web-quests on the first day or two, then follow with the activity/lab the following day! The independent learning days are also great for subs!
