Reflection: Students with Disabilities The Layers of the Atmosphere - Section 4: Elaborate


The paper model of the layers of the atmosphere works with this population of students.  It's also very helpful for them to memorize information in a visual manner.  Not all students need this kind of cut and paste activity.  Some could merely benefit from some kind of pneumonic device used to identify all the layers.  Check out the sample foldable A and sample foldable B for student examples.
