Are you seeking a phenomena-based resource on Earth’s spheres and Sphere Interaction? Students will learn about the Earth’s spheres and sphere interaction by developing a model to show the 4 Earth spheres: geosphere, biosphere, hydrosphere, and atmosphere interact. Students will love these engaging activities! Great for 5th-grade science! ⚫⚪⚫⚪

This resource includes the use of phenomena. ✅

This unit explores the Earth’s four spheres ( geosphere, biosphere, hydrosphere, and atmosphere) and how they interact (sphere interaction) and exchange energy and matter. ❤️


The resource includes:

  • an informative slideshow
  • 3 pages of nonfiction text
  • response pages with text-dependent questions
  • interactive notebook flaps
  • a hands-on lab activity with follow-up pages
  • graphic organizers

Teachers Love This Resource!

Kathryn ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ Extremely Satisfied

“I loved using this resource!!! It made planning for this unit an absolute breeze. My students were engaged and totally loved making the terrariums. I think this was a great unit that I will happily use again next year. I’m planning to keep buying more units from this creator. I loved it. :D”

Students will learn about the interaction of the four spheres while thinking critically about the topic of sphere interaction.
