I love this resource! It is very interactive and engaging for the students.

It has full alignment to NCES.7.E.1.1 (Compare the composition, properties and structure of Earth's atmosphere to include: mixtures of gases and differences in temperature and pressure within layers.) It could also be used at the high school level in Earth science and covers EEn.2.5.1 Summarize the structure and composition of our atmosphere.

Objectives: Could include individual daily learning objectifies instead of just the larger standard.

Assessment Strategies: This includes starters and exit tickets as assessments.
