In this two part activity, learners become draft detectives by constructing their own draft catchers to detect drafts around windows or doors.
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 activity, learners explore the human influences on the carbon cycle and examine how fossil fuels release carbon.
Through doing these hands-on activities, learners explore the environmental consequences associated with fossil fuel usage.
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
In this activity, learners make a miniature greenhouse or "terrarium" to explore the greenhouse effect.
In this activity, learners discover how solar energy can be used to heat water.
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
In this activity, learners take on the role of a carbon atom and record which reservoirs in the carbon cycle they visit.
Learners will build and experiment with their own windmills made from simple household materials.
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).
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
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.
In this lesson, learners will practice graphing and statistically analyzing data.
In this activity about combustion and energy, learners observe a burning candle in a sealed jar and the burning of white sugar.
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.
