Working in pairs or small groups, students use construction paper to simulate cloud cover. They estimate the percentage of cloud cover represented by torn pieces of paper on a contrasting background and assign a cloud cover classification to the simulations created by their classmates. Students gain experience estimating cloud cover, evaluating the accuracy of estimates, and using fractions and percentages. ... Full description.

We've all seen pictures of the Earth and its atmosphere as a series of concentric circles, showing the troposphere, stratosphere, ionosphere, etc., often looking like a bullseye target with the solid Earth in the middle. But if we were to draw that picture to scale, what would it really look like? Students create a scale drawing of the atmosphere, to see how thin the layer we breathe really is. This ...
