Basic 6th Grade Atmosphere Trivia Quiz! - Quiz

Below is a 6thgrade-atmosphere trivia quiz that is designed to see how much the students have been able to understand in the science class. One of the things we know is that there are four layers in the earth’s atmosphere, each with its own individual features. Take it up and get to refresh your memory on all we covered.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Which of the following is the Sun's lower atmosphere?

    • A.

      Chromosphere

    • B.

      Sunspot

    • C.

      Photosphere

    • D.

      Corona

    Correct Answer
    A. Chromosphere
    Explanation
    The chromosphere is the Sun's lower atmosphere. It is located above the photosphere and below the corona. It is characterized by a reddish glow and is visible during a total solar eclipse. The chromosphere plays a crucial role in the Sun's energy transfer and is responsible for the emission of ultraviolet radiation. It is an important area for studying solar flares and other solar activities. Sunspots, photosphere, and corona are not considered as the Sun's lower atmosphere.

    A neutrino is a virtually massless particle

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Neutrinos are indeed virtually massless particles. They are subatomic particles that have very little, if any, mass. They are electrically neutral and interact very weakly with matter, making them difficult to detect. The fact that neutrinos have such a small mass is supported by various experiments and observations in the field of particle physics.

    Correct Answer
    Core
    Explanation
    The central region of Earth is called the core. The core is composed of two parts: the inner core and the outer core. The inner core is solid and made up of mostly iron and nickel. It is extremely hot and under immense pressure. The outer core is liquid and also consists of iron and nickel. The core plays a crucial role in Earth's magnetic field and the generation of heat that drives plate tectonics and volcanic activity.

     Earth's atmosphere extends hundreds of kilometers above the

    • A.

      Planet

    • B.

      Sky

    • C.

      Atmosphere

    • D.

      Surface

    Correct Answer
    D. Surface
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Surface" because Earth's atmosphere extends from the surface of the planet and goes up for hundreds of kilometers. The atmosphere is the layer of gases that surrounds the Earth and is held in place by gravity. It consists of several layers, including the troposphere, stratosphere, mesosphere, thermosphere, and exosphere. These layers gradually become thinner as they extend higher into space.

     A blanket of gases surrounding planet is known as

    • A.

      Ozone

    • B.

      Temperature

    • C.

      Atmosphere

    • D.

      Season

    Correct Answer
    C. Atmosphere
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Atmosphere". The atmosphere refers to the layer of gases that surrounds a planet. It is composed of various gases such as nitrogen, oxygen, carbon dioxide, and trace amounts of other gases. The atmosphere plays a crucial role in regulating the planet's temperature, protecting it from harmful radiation, and providing the necessary gases for life to exist.
