This one page document asks students to label each layer of the atmosphere, as well as give at least 3 facts about each layer. Students may draw a picture for the facts or write a fact. It also asks students to write why the atmosphere is important to Earth in 3-5 sentences. The directions are editable so you can have students do what you want with this assignment!
I use this as a remedial activity for students who are still struggling with the order of the layers as well as their properties.
