Learning About the Layers of the Atmosphere Can Be So Much Fun!
I love it when my boys show interest in new things, especially science.
It’s a blast helping them research the topics and discovering resources that allow them to explore.
I think the best part is sharing ways to extend that learning fun. We like to include a variety of resources, like hands-on activities, videos, and printable worksheets.
Recently, my boys were fascinated about the Artemis I launch. They started asking all sorts of questions about what happens during a rocket launch, as well as what happens as it goes through the atmosphere.
I thought it was a perfect time to build on this curiosity and help all of us explore the science behind the layers of the atmosphere!
