Hot Stuff!: Investigation #4
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.
Hot Stuff!: Investigation #1
Learners test two jars, one containing plain air and one containing carbon dioxide gas, to see their reactions to temperature changes.
Plugged in to CO2
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.
In this online Flash game, learners will explore a coral reef using an underwater remotely operated vehicle (ROV).
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
Earth's Energy Cycle: AlbedoAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners experiment and observe how the color of materials that cover the Earth affects the amounts of sunlight our planet absorbs.
Arctic Sea IceAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners explore how the area of Arctic sea ice has changed over recent years. First, learners graph the area of Arctic sea ice over time from 1979 to 2007.
It's a Gas, ManAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners discover if carbon dioxide has an effect on temperature.
The Carbon Cycle and its Role in Climate Change: Activity 3Add to list Details
In this activity, learners explore the human influences on the carbon cycle and examine how fossil fuels release carbon.
Arctic Story PuzzlesAdd to list Details
This activity has three story puzzles learners can solve to learn about life in the Arctic.
Making Connections: What You Can Do To Help Stop Global Climate Change
In this cooperative learning activity, learners visit ten stations and are challenged to think critically about various conservation questions and issues.
Weather and Climate: What's the Difference?Add to list Details
This lesson plan enables learners to explore the differences between weather and climate.
Carbon Dioxide RemovalAdd to list Details
In this experiment using sprigs of Elodea, learners will observe a natural process that removes carbon dioxide (CO2) from Earth's atmosphere.
Understanding AlbedoAdd to list Details
In this activity related to climate change, learners examine albedo and the ice albedo feedback effect as it relates to snow, ice, and the likely results of reduced snow and ice cover on global temper
Mapping Sea Level RiseAdd to list Details
In this activity related to climate change, learners create and explore topographical maps as a means of studying sea level rise.
Make a TerrariumAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners make a miniature greenhouse or "terrarium" to explore the greenhouse effect.
Using Solar EnergyAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners discover how solar energy can be used to heat water.
Mapping Greenhouse Gas Emissions Where You LiveAdd to list Details
In this lesson plan, learners examine some of the of greenhouse gas emissions sources in their community.
Prehistoric Climate Change
In this online interactive, learners use fossils to infer temperatures 55 million years ago, at the sites where the fossils were found.
Hot Stuff!: Testing for Carbon Dioxide from Our Own Breath
Learners blow into balloons and collect their breath--carbon dioxide gas (CO2). They then blow the CO2 from the balloon into a solution of acid-base indicator.
