Environmental science worksheet to help students answer the climate change question "What is the ozone layer."

What is the ozone layer made of?

The ozone molecule constitutes three oxygen atoms and is fairly unstable. It only makes up a small fraction of the upper atmosphere, but it still protects all biological processes on earth.

The presence of this layer is what enables organisms to thrive on the surface of the earth. Without it, life on earth would be unbearable
