In this ozone layer day worksheet, students read or listen to a passage about ozone layer day, then match phrases, fill in the blanks, choose words, unscramble words and sentences, put sentences in order, write discussion questions and conduct a survey.
Middle-school meteorologists absorb information about ultraviolet radiaton and consider the ozone layer. The book that learners are supposed to refer to is not available, so you might want to locate some graphics or posters detailing the atmospheric layers. What is left here is the information that you will want to present to your class about ozone action and how it protects us from ultraviolet radiation.
Explore the causes of ozone depletion and the effect on plankton, algae, plants, amphibians, and humans. Learn how the Montreal Protocol has possibly helped reverse the decline of the ozone layer. Warning: photos of skin and eye damage caused by UV radiation are included. The complexity of the content is geared toward AP environmental science or college-level courses.
Students determine how they can contribute to protecting nautre. In this enovironmental stewardship lesson, students discuss pollution, the ozone layer, and other environmental issues as they complete a listening activity and conduct research. Students wrap up the lesson by writing tanka and haiku that reflect on nature.
Learners use data from tables to draw graphs. They interpret the graphed data and explain how CFCs damage the ozone layer. This is a good cross-curricular instructional activity.
During the Achaea Eon, Cyano bacteria start to produce and release oxygen into the atmosphere making the environment suitable for Eukaryotic life forms. Sal explains the timeline of these events as well as the consequences that occurred due to the higher levels of oxygen. The video would be great if paired with a video from the Kahn Academy biology series.
Students examine the issue of ozone depletion. They define key vocabulary terms, take a pre-quiz, discuss the quiz questions and answers, read an article, and answer discussion questions.
In this online interactive English worksheet, learners watch an embedded video about global warming, read a selection about the ozone layer, and then respond to 18 fill in the blank and short answer questions.  Students may submit their answers to be scored.
Seventh graders develop an understanding of the ozone layer, it's affect on Earth, and the effect of human activity on the ozone layer. They then interpret data from satellite pictures and develop an understanding of longitude/latitude of specific locations.

New Review Ozone Alert

The hole in the ozone layer may "scaereosol" to death! Meteorology, environmental, or atmosphere students read about the atmosphere's ozone content and the sources of air pollution. This is a valuable reading resource for your atmosphere unit.
Students read a CNNfyi.com article in order to identify causes of ozone depletion. They compare and contrast the effects of chlorofluorocarbons and bromine on the ozone. They develop a plan to prevent future destruction of the ozone.
In this Ozone worksheet, students graph ozone readings from 1956 to 1996. They predict what the Ozone layer will look like in 2010 and 2050. They answer questions about the Ozone and its purpose.
In this environment activity, students distinguish between UV-A, UV-B, and UV-C radiation and explain. Then they list various explanations of the source of ozone depletion. Students also describe why an increase in smog ozone does not compensate for a depletion in stratospheric ozone.
Pupils test commercial sunscreens or sunglasses for accuracy of their Sun Protection Factor. They devise a method for testing UV beads with a visual clues which they publish as research. They investigate occupations such as dermatologists, ophthalmologists, meteorologists, and solar astronomers and choose two to compare.
In this global warming worksheet, students describe the ozone layer in the atmosphere and global warming. Students describe possible effect of global warming. This worksheet has 10 short answer questions.
Halting the depletion of the hole in the ozone layer has been one of humanity's happy recoveries from previous damage done to the environment. Meteorology masters muse the Montreal Protocol and examine data on changes in the ozone. Unfortunately, the embedded website has been reconfigured and the data not accessible; you will need to find another Internet source for the data and associated animations, but it is easily done!
Students investigate the impact of pollution and depletion of the ozone layer on the Arctic and Antarctic. They determine the human impact affects these areas and how that affects the rest of the world. They write magazine ads that educate the public about how to decrease human affect on these areas.
During the Achaea Eon, Cyano bacteria start to produce and release oxygen into the atmosphere making the environment suitable for Eukaryotic life forms. Sal explains the timeline of these events as well as the consequences that occurred due to the higher levels of oxygen. The video would be great if paired with a video from the Kahn Academy biology series.
Students analyze ozone data.  In this atmosphere lesson, students will use a NASA resource to gather data for different regions of the Earth.  Students will then create a graph for their data and answer related questions. 
Students engage in lesson concerned with the concept of the ozone layer. They write a reflective journal using prior knowledge. Students read sources of information about the existence of a hole in the ozone layer. Finally they create models of molecules to compare oxygen and ozone.
