The Four Spheres: Interactions that Shape the World

Published on February 5, 2023 by

This lesson will help student to identify the four spheres that make up our world — geosphere, atmosphere, hydrosphere, and biosphere. Geosphere comprises the outer most solid layer of Earth. Sand, rocks, mountains, and magma belong to this sphere. Atmosphere consists of all the layer of gasses that envelope our planet and it helps keep our environment nice and warm. All the water on Earth, whether solid, liquid, or gas, is a part of another sphere called hydrosphere. Unlike other spheres, biosphere is made up of all living things on Earth. Together, these spheres interact with each other to shape our world.

This video satisfies the 5-ESS2-1 requirement of fifth-grade science proficiency.

Students who demonstrate understanding can:  5-ESS2-1. Develop a model using an example to describe ways the geosphere, biosphere, hydrosphere, and/or atmosphere interact.
