9/11/1312th Day of School

Learning Goal (7.E.1.1): I will be able to describe the properties of Earth’s atmosphere.

Due Today: 1st 3 PowerPoint slides

Evening Assignment: Work on atmosphere properties slide of Powerpoint


Do now

In your composition notebook, copy and answer the following…

What words would you use to describe the properties of Earth’s atmosphere?

Do Now

McDougall textbook, p. viii


Do now1

  • Did you get it right?

  • What words would you use to describe the properties of Earth’s atmosphere?

  • Altitude

  • Density

  • Temperature

  • Air Pressure

Do Now


Defining key words

  • Why are these properties important?

  • Look up and write down the definition in your science notebook for the following terms:

  • Altitude

  • Density

  • Temperature

  • Air Pressure

Defining key words

McDougall textbook, p. A11


Defining key words1

  • What are the properties?

  • Altitude: distance above sea level

  • Density: the amount of mass in a given volume of a substance

  • Temperature: how hot or cold an object is

  • Air pressure: the force of

  • molecules pushing on an

  • area

Defining key words

McDougall textbook, p. A11


The composition and properties of the atmosphere make life on earth possible

1. Living things use gases in the air:

  • oxygen, nitrogen, argon, carbon dioxide, & water vapor

    2. The atmosphere keeps Earth warm.

  • Transports energy to different regions of the planet (radiation, conduction & convection).

    3. The atmosphere protects & supports life.

  • Supplies materials that your body uses.

  • The atmosphere is held in place by gravity.

The Composition and Properties of the Atmosphere make life on Earth possible.


Properties of earth s atmosphere

Altitude and Density

  • Air becomes thinner as altitude increases. There is less oxygen.

  • The thickness or thinness of air is measured by density.

  • The atmosphere’s density decreases as you travel upward. The air on a mountain is less dense than the air at sea level. It contains less mass.

  • Most of the mass of the atmosphere is close to Earth’s surface.

Properties of Earth’s Atmosphere

McDougall textbook, p. A10


Properties of earth s atmosphere1

Temperature

  • Changes with altitude

  • Temperature is warmer at sea level but decreases with altitude in the mountains.

  • Measured with a thermometer.

Air pressure http eo ucar edu webweather basic5 html

  • Air molecules move in all directions, air pressure pushes in all directions.

  • Air pressure decreases with altitude.

  • The air molecules in air at sea level are denser than air molecules in air over a mountain.

  • Air pressure is higher in dense air than in thin air.

  • Areas of high pressure move to areas of low pressure.

  • Measured with a barometer.

Major assessment

  • Assignment: Earth’s Atmosphere Powerpoint

  • You will make a Powerpoint presentation about Earth’s atmosphere. You may use information and pictures from class, the textbook, other books, and the Internet but you MUST cite your sources (ex. title, page, web address, etc). Include text in your own words explaining any images you use. Your Powerpoint should have the following slides. Final Powerpoint is due Friday 9/13/13.

  • Title slide with title, your name, period, date

  • Slide defining atmosphere

  • Slide(s) about the composition of Earth’s atmosphere

  • Slide(s) about the properties of Earth’s atmosphere

  • Slide(s) about the structure of Earth’s atmosphere
