Product Description

In this activity students will learn about the layers of Earth's atmosphere through trial and error in a team competition setting. Students are assigned teams and given five signs with the labels "troposphere", "stratosphere", "mesosphere", "thermosphere", and "freebie". In the activity students are faced with several questions and statements about the layers of the atmosphere and then given time to talk with their team about their answers. Once an answer is revealed and while the students are engaged and invested in the topics the teacher will have them add the new information to their notes and to a diagram of the atmosphere's layers. Students enjoy the competitive nature of the activity and teachers will like having a nice change of pace from traditional note taking. The major tool that is used to guide the activity and organize the information is a 15 page PowerPoint with original artwork (which can be reused in your own personal projects) and smooth animations designed to keep students engaged as it reveals more about the layers of the atmosphere and builds the diagram bit by bit as part of the competition. Aside from the PowerPoint and the table / diagram sheet, teachers will also receive PDFs of the label signs used in the activity, a filled in version of the table / diagram sheet, and a teacher guide to help you to best utilize these resources in your own classroom.
