Ozone Layer Day
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.
UV light & Ozone layer
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.
Ozone Hole - Changes in the Stratosphere
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 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.
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.
Effects of Ozone Depletion
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.
Learning to Be: Being Concerned About Nature
Students determine how they can contribute to protecting nautre. In this enovironmental stewardship instructional activity, students discuss pollution, the ozone layer, and other environmental issues as they complete a listening activity and conduct research. Students wrap up the instructional activity by writing tanka and haiku that reflect on nature.
Environmental Issues in the Polar Regions
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.
The Ups and Downs of Ozone
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.
The Ozone Layer
High schoolers 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.
English Exercises: The Ozone Layer
In this online interactive English worksheet, students 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.
If you need a comprehensive review of the development of Earth's atmosphere through the ages, then this is for you! The presentation starts with a introduction to theories of planet formation and initial distribution of isotopes in the layers of crust and atmosphere. The theories and evidence of the roles of living things in impacting the composition through to a recent time period are complete. This long presentation and may inspire valuable research projects. Note that there are almost no visuals, so this is best used with the highly motivated.
Environment: Battling for Oxygen
Learners construct an interactive ozone depletion model using gumdrops and toothpicks. After analyzing the data obtained from the model, they record it on butcher paper and complete worksheets about oxygen.
Protecting Yourself Against the Harmful Affects of UV Rays
Students study about the different types of UV rays and how they can protect themselves against their harmful effects. They explain how to interpret the UV index in order to plan the best time to participate in outdoor activities
Ozone and Temperature Data Analysis, South Pole Antarctica
Students discuss the layers of the atmosphere, and the history of the ozone hole. They discuss the chemistry of the ozone formation. Students compare seasonal data collected with ozonesondes. They compare Antarctic and Arctic ozone hole formation.
Integrating Environmental Science-Ozone Depletion
In this ozone worksheet, learners read about the ozone layer, its make-up and its depletion. They answer three critical thinking questions about ozone and the ozone layer.
Air Dectector Investigation
Students describe the types of pollutants affecting air quality and explain the difference between bad and good ozone. They investigate air quality index levels and patterns in the Midwest region of the United States.
Ozone Hole Activity
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.
Introduce your class to one of chemistry's functional groups, haloalkanes. A list of several functional groups is shown, but then viewers are taught to identify and name haloalkanes. Examples of these compounds are given and the problems associated with using chlorofluorocarbons are explained. This is an outstanding presentation except that chlorofluorocarbons is misspelled on the corresponding slides.
Validation of Stratospheric Ozone
Students examine the stratospheric ozone. In this data collecting lesson, students compare methods of measuring stratospheric ozone, collect and record data using graphic representations with a graphing calculator or Microsoft Excel. They interpret the data by answering a series of questions.
