CLARK — Students in Miss Franko’s sixth grade science classes have been learning about Earth’s atmosphere, its importance, and what it is made of.

As an activity the students participated in a “jigsaw” to learn about the four layers of the atmosphere. The students divided into “expert” groups where they read about a specific layer and became an expert in the topic. Once they finished here they met with their “home” group. In this group there was an expert from each layer of the atmosphere and each expert taught the other students about their layer. While doing so they took notes on the different layers.

After the information was exchanged the groups created a poster displaying the four different layers of the atmosphere.
