In this lesson, students will develop and use models to exemplify the properties of the atmosphere (including the gases, temperature and pressure differences,and altitude changes) and the relative scale in relation to the size of Earth. The students will use data and text to develop their own model of the atmosphere to include the different layers and properties.
How are models useful to demonstrate the properties of the atmosphere?
