Presentation on theme: "Goldilocks and the Three Bears"— Presentation transcript:
1 Goldilocks and the Three Bears Welcome Back! Greet your partner and silently read through the short script and answer the three questions provided7.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.
3 Today’s PurposeI will be able to understand Goldilocks Principle in relation to the importance of the Earth’s atmosphere and how it sustains lifeI will be able to answer the following questions:Compare and contrast Earth’s atmosphere to that of Venus and Mars. You may draw pictures to describe the difference, create a Venn diagram, draw a chart, or just write a description.Explain how Earth’s atmosphere functions to keep us alive.Predict what would happen to an astronaut if he were to take off his mask on the three different planets(Earth, Venus, and Mars)
4 What is an atmosphere?The mixture of gases surrounding the Earth or other celestial body, held in place by gravity What does it mean by mixture? Different types of gases blended together. For example, oxygen, nitrogen, carbon dioxide, water vapor, etc. Mixture can be separated. For example, trail mix is a mixture. You can separate the raisins from the almonds and M&M’s How do you separate a mixture of air? It’s gases mixed together. Through a process called fractional distillation, the gases are cooled and compressed and expanded to liquefy them. Elements and compounds have different temperatures that they liquefy.
5 It’s All About the Percentages Place the correct pie chart with the correct planet. Hint: Think about what gas should be present or absent to make a planet too hot, too cold, and just right
6 Venus (too hot) 2nd planet from the sun Similar atmosphere composition to Mars96.5% CO23.5% N2trace O2Very dense atmosphereCO2 concentration causes hot temperature and very hot greenhouse effectToo hot to sustain lifeVery high pressureImage found at: https://encrypted-tbn3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcS92biLdEv7Pk71X1U1veD207z1bqfLqm1_PeLYtP8cxSynm7V2
7 Greenhouse EffectTrapping of the sun’s radiation by the combination of gases found in the atmosphere, which causes a planet to warmCO2 concentration usually behind the trapping of infrared radiationOther gases include water vapor, methane, and CFC’s
8 Mars (too cold) 4th planet from the sun Very thin atmosphere 95% CO2 Due to thin atmosphere CO2 concentration has no effect on warming the planet, very low surface temperatureToo cold to sustain lifeVery low pressureImage found at: https://encrypted-tbn3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcS92biLdEv7Pk71X1U1veD207z1bqfLqm1_PeLYtP8cxSynm7V2
9 Earth (just right)Just the right amount of greenhouse gases (CO2, water vapor, methane) to warm the planet to sustain lifeComposition of atmosphere78% N221% O20.9% ArTrace amount of greenhouse gasesLife on Earth helps sustain our atmosphere through the cycling of oxygen via photosynthesisWithout life Earth would either be like Mars or VenusPressure in between Mars and VenusImage found at: https://encrypted-tbn3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcS92biLdEv7Pk71X1U1veD207z1bqfLqm1_PeLYtP8cxSynm7V2
10 Wrapping it UpAt the bottom of your notes answer the three questions that were asked at the beginning of the period with the correct answer in complete sentencesIn the left margin of your paper come up with three questions to ask about the notes you just takenFor example, Compare and contrast the atmosphere of Venus and MarsWorksheet found at:
11 HomeworkComplete the reading dealing with the composition of the Earth’s atmosphere and complete the worksheet comparing cakes and the atmospheric gasesDocument found at:
12 Quick WriteFor the next two minutes, write as many facts that you recall from yesterday. Be sure write the entire two minutes
13 Today’s PurposeI will be able to understand how the chemical composition of the atmosphere allows for life on EarthTasks for todayBellringer dealing with quick write of what you remember from previous dayComplete notes dealing with chemical composition of Earth’s atmosphereWhiteboard review-you will be working with group to recall definitions, answer questions about atmosphere chemical composition
14 Image found at : https://encrypted-tbn1. gstatic. com/images
15 O2 O2 O2 O2 O2 O2 O2 Oxygen Concentration Too much—more than 40% is toxic to humans begins to destroy cell structure and functionToo little— less than 16.5% humans blackoutJust write—21% human body functions properlyO2O2O2O2O2O2
16 Whiteboard ReviewDefine the terms (picture, definition, context clue sentence)AtmosphereChemical compositionMixtureGreenhouse Effect2. Compare and ContrastEarth’s atmosphere vs. Venus’Earth’s atmosphere vs. Mars’3. Explain why Earth’s atmosphere allows life on Earth4. Explain what needs to happen to Venus’ atmosphere for it to be suitable for life5. Explain what needs to happen to Mars’ atmosphere for it be suitable for life
17 Ticket OutWrite 3 test questions and the answer for each dealing with Earth’s atmospheric composition.
18 Glad to Have You!!! Please fill out the check off sheet
19 HomeworkFind a news article about the atmosphere. Complete the graphic organizer about what you read.
20 Goldilocks and the Three Bears Welcome Back! Discuss with your partner the article that you read from the previous night. Write 3 facts from each article discussed.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.
22 Goldilocks' Principle Atmosphere Display Colors for GHGs Create a title Place the appropriate amount of cotton balls in each bag Label the bag with the planet it represents Create a pie chart that represents the correct amounts of gases Answer the questions at the end Complete the presentation completelyNitrogen= red Oxygen= green Argon=purple Carbon dioxide = yellow Methane =white
23 HomeworkComplete 2 on the clock homework questions dealing with the atmosphere
24 Glad to Have You!!! Please fill out the check off sheet
25 Human SurvivalThink about the composition of the Earth’s atmosphere. Fill in the handout with the role that the atmosphere plays for the various human life necessities
26 Today’s PurposeI will be observing the effect of the amount of atmospheric gases on life on earth I will be completing a module that simulates what happens when the various gas levels change Questions to answer by the end List the atmospheric conditions necessary for life on Earth. Explain the importance of each. Predict what happens to the Earth if each condition was not present.
28 Astro-Venture TasksFirst , you are going to complete a Training ModuleYou are going to be changing the amount of gasesYou are going to write detailed observation s about what happenedex. When the _____ was lowered first, the fish died. Then the grass and trees died. And finally all the animals died. The temperature dropped. Lowering ____made life on Earth cease and lowered the temperature.Your second module is a Challenger module. You may need to refer to your notes for assistance for completion.
29 HomeworkTeach your parent/guardian/sibling about what you have learned this week. You must teach them for 15 minutes. After you have taught them for 15 minutes, they must write a summary about what they learned, how well you taught them, and how you can improve teaching them. Parent must sign and date it.
