According to NGSS, students are expected to understand the impact the Geosphere, Biosphere, Hydrosphere, and Atmosphere have on each other. This organizer helps to keep the different aspects of Earth identified visually. It also connects one sphere to another proving life can greatly be impacted by an event from a different sphere.
