Inquiries in Science®: Uncovering the Atmosphere Kit

Item # 251421 Exclusive

Grades 9–12. Students explore the importance of Earth’s atmosphere in sustaining life. Through experimentation, they discover the composition of the atmosphere, the development of frontal systems, and how the atmosphere regulates and circulates heat. Students compare how water and soil absorb and emit heat. Then they design their own experiment to examine the temperature effects of altering the energy radiation balance in a model atmospheric system. Kit materials equip 10 groups of students.
