Jeopardy Life support The Sun’s Energy Gasses in the atmosphere The effect of human activities Lab safety Random facts Final Jeopardy
Life support 100 The atmosphere contains this gas to support living things. What is oxygen?
Life support 200 The higher you go, the more of this you have as air pressure decreases. What is altitude?
Life support 300 Most of the air that you inhale is made of this element. What is Nitrogen?
Life support 400 Carbon dioxide constantly moves between plants and animals and the atmosphere. What is part of the carbon cycle?
Life support 500 What is density? The amount of mass something has compared to the amount of space that it takes up.
The Sun’s Energy 100 The type of energy that the Sun supplies the earth. What is heat energy?
The Sun’s Energy 200 This much of the solar radiation that hits the Earth is absorbed by the Earth’s surface. What is about half?
The Sun’s Energy 300 The transfer of energy as a result of direct contact of matter. What is conduction?
The Sun’s Energy 400 This layer of the Earth’s atmosphere protects organisms from harmful ultraviolet rays. What is the stratosphere?
The Sun’s Energy 500 Three ways that the atmosphere moves energy (three words). What are radiation, conduction, and convection?
Gasses in the atmosphere 100 These reflect the most solar radiation. What are clouds?
Gasses in the atmosphere 200 Certain gases, such as carbon dioxide, in the troposphere. What causes the greenhouse effect? Or What are greenhouse gasses?
Gasses in the atmosphere 300 The chemical formula for ozone. What is O 3 ?
Gasses in the atmosphere 400 Gasses absorb and emit infrared radiation, which keeps energy in Earth’s system for awhile. What is the greenhouse effect?
Gasses in the atmosphere 500 Without these gases, water would freeze and it would be too cold for most life on Earth. What are the greenhouse gasses, carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide (NOX), water vapor, and methane?
The effect of human activities 100 This breathable byproduct of human activity can harm organisms that are exposed to it. What is air pollution?
The effect of human activities 200 Burning forests gives off gasses and adds to this. What the greenhouse effect?
The effect of human activities 300 Tiny particles or droplets that are mixed in with air. What is are particulates?
The effect of human activities 400 The combination of smoke and fog. What is smog?
The effect of human activities 500 Oil, gasoline, and coal. What are fossil fuels?
Lab safety 100 What you should do after every lab or activity. What is clean up?
Lab safety 200 You should know where these are in case of fire. (two things) What are the fire safety blanket and the fire extinguisher?
Lab safety 300 Why you should never put anything into your mouth while in the lab or participate in horseplay. What is because someone could get hurt and it’s against the lab safety contract I signed?
Lab safety 400 How many supplies you should get when you are preparing for a lab. What is only what you need?
Lab safety 500 What you should do with instructions before, during, and after the lab. What is read them, follow them and check them?
Random facts 100 The role trees play in the water cycle. What is transpiration?
Random facts 200 The role that trees play in the carbon cycle. What is take in carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) and release oxygen (O 2 )? Or, what is photosynthesis?
Random facts 300 The on going process by which Nitrogen is moved through the earth, living organisms, and the atmosphere. What is the Nitrogen Cycle?
Random facts 400 Moby. What is the name of the robot in Brainpop movies?
Random facts 500 The number of meters in a kilometer. What is 1,000 meters?
Final Jeopardy 1.Define and describe the lowest two layers of the Earth’s atmosphere. Make a sketch and explain in complete sentences. (Turn in to teacher with your score sheet when you are finished.)
1.What is the stratosphere and the troposphere? The stratosphere contains ozone and protects from harmful ultraviolet rays of the Sun while letting. It is the second closest layer of atmosphere to Earth. The troposphere is the closest layer to earth. It contains most of earth’s waters and greenhouse gasses. Heat transfer and weather occur in the troposphere.
