Engage students to make observations, inferences and collect data using lithographs (pictures of planet Earth taken from the space station). Students investigate what scientists have learned about our planet Earth's atmosphere, lithosphere/geosphere, hydrosphere and biosphere. Students learn about the natural and man made events and the impacts that these events have on our planet.
Student-centered unit that is designed with science, math and reading integrated into lesson. This lesson can be set up in stations for middle school 6th through 8th.
