The Method….

Around the room, there are hidden clues and vocabulary words associated with the ATMOSPHERE.

It is your goal to work with your assigned group to gather all TEN vocabulary words & their definitions as quickly as possible.

Words must be written in each

player’s notebook LEGIBIALLY and

in the correct location.


As an incentive, I will be offering prizes to the groups that complete the Vocabulary Fun Run.

        • Snack Food
        • Juice Boxes
        • Blow Pops
  • Consolation Prize for finishing the Activity: Piece of Candy
  • Remember, these can not be eaten in another classroom without that teacher’s permission. DO NOT LET ME FIND ANY TRASH OR FOOD LEFT IN MY CLASSROOM. OR ELSE.
the rules
The Rules…
  • You may NOT TALK.
  • You may NOT RUN.
  • Every player is responsible for copying their definition from each notecard. You may NOT COPY ANSWERS OFF OF ANOTHER PLAYER’S PAPER.
  • Definitions MUST BE WRITTEN LEGIBILY and on page 13 of EACH PLAYER’S NOTEBOOK.
  • If your team breaks a rule, the referee (me) will call you back to HOME BASE (FRONT DOOR) for a 1 minute TIME OUT.

Facts about the Atmosphere….

  • The Earth’s Atmosphere is made up of 5 layers that have distinct characteristics.
    • Each has a different:
      • Temperature
      • Air pressure
air pressure the atmosphere
Air Pressure & the Atmosphere
  • Air Pressure is a characteristic of the atmosphere.
  • As ALTITUDE increases, AIR PRESSURE decreases.
  • This is because as you move up, the air molecules move further apart because of gravity.
air pressure
Air Pressure
  • Close to Earth’s Surface  Stronger pull from Gravity  More Air Molecules  molecules are close together Higher Air Pressure
  • Far from Earth’s Surface  Less pull from Gravity  Less Air Molecules  molecules are farther apart  Lower Air Pressure
exit ticket
Exit Ticket

Answer in COMPLETE sentences for full credit.

  • Is Air Pressure higher or lower as you move away from the Earth’s Surface? Why?
  • How many layers make up the Earth’s Atmosphere? Looking at your VOCABULARY list, can you guess the names of the layers?
