Modeling Earth's Atmosphere
Life on Earth is made possible by the unique composition of its atmosphere. Working collaboratively, a scale model is created as young scientists learn about the different layers of gas that surround the planet. Cards are included that describe the specific region of the atmosphere that each group is responsible for adding to the model.

Post-Assessment: Global Atmospheric Change
Find out how much your earth scientists learned about the atmosphere in the unit on global atmospheric change with this assessment. After writing a letter to persuade others to make changes to protect our atmosphere, pupils take the same assessment that they took at the beginning of the unit.

Here is a suitable set of slides to use when teaching about the layers of the atmosphere, climate, global winds, and types of clouds. These slides will support a few different lectures. You will probably want to replace the diagrams with sharper images, but why start from scratch when you have a well-organized format and straightforward content to start with?

This is a very basic presentation of the layers of the atmosphere. It divides the atmosphere into four layers and pretty much only mentions the elevation and order of each. The last of seven slides shows a pie graph and data table of the main components of the air in the atmosphere.

Another A+ physics presentation, this one on gases, is brought to you by the Nevada Joint Union High School District. Cohesive, compact, and even cute, this collection of slides leads viewers through an exploration of the properties and behavior of gases, atmospheric pressure, the use of Boyle's law and Bernoulli's principle, and ends with a brief introduction to plasma.

Lifesaving Layers-Earth's Atmosphere
Young scholars gain a detailed comprehension of the layers of Earth's atmosphere. They represent their knowledge visually in a standing exhibit. Students compose a key to explain their visual display. They research the effect of global warming on the Earth's atmosphere.

A Simple Model for Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide
In this atmospheric carbon dioxide worksheet, students use two diagrams to solve 6 problems about atmospheric carbon dioxide. One diagram shows the Keeling Curve and the other shows sources of carbon and the natural and anthropogenic flux. Students find sources and sinks of carbon dioxide, they write a differential equation describing the change in carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and they use the Keeling Curve to compare it to their equation for the rate of change.

Blocking the Sun: Earth's External Heat Engine and the Earth's Atmosphere
Using a detailed worksheet, advanced earth science learners examine radiation data and graphs. They compare the solar energy reaching different latitudes and the effects of the atmosphere on insolation. The exercises are comprehensive. The graphs and diagrams on the worksheets are a little lighter than the typed font, so you might have to explain if they are hard to read.

The Changing Atmosphere of Pluto
In this atmosphere of Pluto worksheet, students use an equation for the orbit of Pluto to determine the semi-major axis, the semi-minor axis, the ellipticity of the orbit, the aphelion and the perihelion. They also determine the predicted temperature of Pluto at perihelion and aphelion and the changes in the atmosphere between these two points.
