Draft DetectivesAdd to list Details
In this two part activity, learners become draft detectives by constructing their own draft catchers to detect drafts around windows or doors.
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.
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.
Fossil Fuels: Facing the IssuesAdd to list Details
Through doing these hands-on activities, learners explore the environmental consequences associated with fossil fuel usage.
Corals and Chemistry
In this activity, learners investigate how increased carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from the burning of fossil fuels is changing the acidity (pH) of the ocean and affecting coral reefs and other marin
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.
The Carbon Cycle and its Role in Climate Change: Activity 2Add to list Details
In this activity (on page 7), learners explore the meaning of a "carbon sink." Using simple props, learners and/or an educator demonstrate how plants act as carbon sinks and how greenhouse gases cause
The Carbon Cycle Game
In this activity, learners take on the role of a carbon atom and record which reservoirs in the carbon cycle they visit.
Wind Works!Add to list Details
Learners will build and experiment with their own windmills made from simple household materials.
Let's Make MoleculesAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners use gumdrops and toothpicks to model the composition and molecular structure of three greenhouse gases: carbon dioxide (CO2), water vapor (H2O) and methane (CH4).
The Carbon Cycle: How It WorksAdd to list Details
In this game, learners walk through an imaginary Carbon Cycle and explore the ways in which carbon is stored in reservoirs and the processes that transport the carbon atom from one location to another
Energy Choices Board Game
This board game teaches learners about energy decision making. Players select cards that determine the transportation and home design that will influence their expenses as they play.
Energy AuditAdd to list Details
In this lesson, learners will practice graphing and statistically analyzing data.
Finding the Carbon in Sugar
In this activity about combustion and energy, learners observe a burning candle in a sealed jar and the burning of white sugar.
Automotive Emissions and the Greenhouse Effect
In this activity about global climate change, learners will conduct an experiment and collect data to compare the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) in four different sources of gases.
Stabilization Wedges Game
This game introduces learners to the scale of the greenhouse gas problem, plus technologies that already exist to dramatically reduce our carbon emissions and prevent climate change.
