Earth Systems, Structures and Processes Interactive Notebook Activity
In this activity students will create a model of the earth’s layers of the atmosphere. Students will then have a visual model in their interactive notebook to use as reference. Students will follow the directions to discover the five layers in Earth’s atmosphere. Color Earth blue and green. Color the troposphere sky blue. Etc. In addition to this activity I typically create a bulletin board display in our classroom using the same color key.
This is one of the activities listed in the 10 day lesson plan bundle.
