Learners test two jars containing soil, one covered and one open, for changes in temperature. After placing the jars in the Sun, learners discover that the covered jar cools down more slowly.
Learners test two jars, one containing plain air and one containing carbon dioxide gas, to see their reactions to temperature changes.
In this simple activity, learners see the production of a gas, which visibly fills up a balloon placed over the neck of a bottle.
Learners discover the bubble power of living cells in this multi-hour experiment with baker's yeast. Learners make a living yeast/water solution in a bottle, and add table sugar to feed the yeast.
In this biology activity (page 3 of the PDF), learners will explore how plants turn sunlight into food through a process called photosynthesis.
In this activity, learners explore sublimation by conducting experiments with dry ice.
In this activity, learners investigate various appliances and electronics, discovering how much energy each uses and how much carbon dioxide (CO2) is released to produce that energy.
This hands-on activity lets participant explore chemical reactions as they create a soda explosion with lots of bubbles. The bubbles in soda are made of carbon dioxide gas.
In this inquiry-based lesson, learners measure the biomass of trees, calculate the carbon stored by the trees, and use this information to create recommendations about using trees for carbon sequestra
In this activity, learners discover if carbon dioxide has an effect on temperature.
In this activity, learners explore how acids can dissolve eggshells leaving behind a membrane-covered bouncy egg.
Learners mix vinegar and baking soda together in a bottle to create a chemical reaction. The reaction produces a gas, carbon dioxide, which inflates a balloon attached to the mouth of the bottle.
In this activity, learners explore the human influences on the carbon cycle and examine how fossil fuels release carbon.
Ocean acidification is a big issue due to the amount of carbon dioxide humans release. CO2 in the atmosphere is absorbed into the ocean thus changing its acidity.
In this group activity, learners act out key stages of the "ocean carbon cycle" (also known as the "carbonate buffer system") through motions, rearranging blocks and team tasks.
In this activity, learners measure the amount of carbon dioxide in a carbonated drink.
In this activity, learners test to see if carbon dioxide is present in the air we breathe in and out by using a detector made from red cabbage.
Using zebra mussels (Dreissena polymorpha), elodea and an indicator dye, learners study the role of light in photosynthesis.
In this activity, learners heat and cool carbonated water to find out whether temperature has an effect on how fast the dissolved gas leaves carbonated water.
