Oceans, seas, lakes, rivers, groundwater, glaciers, water in atmosphere

9 Atmosphere Blanket of air that surrounds the Earth

10 Biosphere All organisms on Earth as well as the environments in which they live

11 Earth Systems Each sphere does not work in isolation, they all work together For example; Oil spill in ocean, affects hydrosphere and biosphere Volcano erupting affects lithosphere and atmosphere

12 Branches and Spheres Collage
Using the magazines given create a collage of the following: At least one picture representing each branch of Earth Science At least one picture representing each of Earth’s spheres You must label each for credit!!!
