Layers of the Atmosphere Shrinky Dink (Shrink Plastic Not Included)

(0)
Students fill out a chart with information about the layers of the atmosphere, and then they are able to create their own "Shrinky Dink" using shrink plastic (plastic not included). They can either trace the diagram on the left side of the page, or they can draw it from scratch! After they draw it with colored pencils or fine point permanent marker, they can put it in the oven and watch it shrink! (I use a toaster oven in my classroom and do them one at a time, as the kids finish. They love watching them shrink! Shrink plastic best price I have found: School Specialty this Grafix brand: https://store.schoolspecialty.com/OA_HTML/ibeCCtpItmDspRte.jsp?minisite=10206&item=3185038 I cut the shrink plastic into 1/4's and it works out great!
