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
- answer keys
- an assessment in the format of end-of-year testing
Teachers Love This Resource!

“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.
NGSS 5-ESS2-1. Develop a model using an example to describe ways the geosphere, biosphere, hydrosphere, and/or atmosphere interact.
This resource also aligns with Utah SEEd 5.1.3
Develop a model to describe interactions between Earth’s systems including the geosphere, biosphere, hydrosphere, and/or atmosphere. Emphasize interactions between two systems.
Science Concepts Addressed Include:
- Closed system
- Open system
- Sphere interaction
