Standard(s) Taught

SC.6.E.7.4 (DOK Level 3)
Differentiate and show interactions among the geosphere,
hydrosphere, cryosphere, atmosphere, and biosphere.

SC.912.E.7.3 (DOK Level 3)
Differentiate and describe the various interactions among Earth
systems, including: atmosphere, hydrosphere, cryosphere, geosphere,
and biosphere.

SC.6.E.7.9 (DOK Level 2)
Describe how the composition and structure of the atmosphere
protects life and insulates the planet.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

Students will:
• differentiate and demonstrate interactions among the Earth’s
o Geosphere
o Hydrosphere
o Cryosphere
o Atmosphere
o Biosphere
• describe the interactions between the geosphere, hydrosphere, cryosphere,
atmosphere, and biosphere

Students will:
• describe the composition and structure of the Earth’s atmosphere
• describe the functions of the four main layers of Earth’s atmosphere:
o Thermosphere, Mesosphere, Stratosphere, Troposphere
• explain how Earth’s atmosphere protects life and insulates the planet
including the ozone layer
• discuss the impacts to life if Earth’s atmosphere is compromised due to climate
change and ozone depletion (students will not be assessed on the causes of
global warming or causes of the ozone hole)

Classroom Activities

Students will view a demonstration on Clouds and how they are created, what they are made of, and their role in weather in the atmosphere.

Students will participate in a lab that identifies the different layers of the geosphere/lithosphere

Students will use graphic organizers to show the different layers in the atmosphere and the geosphere.

Assignments Due

Thurs/ Friday:  Formative assessment on the Layers of the Atmosphere

This Friday is the last day to retake the Earth Structures Test before the end of the Semester.

Additional Resources
