In this activity, learners explore sublimation by conducting experiments with dry ice.
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 experiment using sprigs of Elodea, learners will observe a natural process that removes carbon dioxide (CO2) from Earth's atmosphere.
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 lesson plan, learners examine some of the of greenhouse gas emissions sources in their community.
Learners will understand the relationship between climate change and sea-level rise.
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 activity, learners use rice grains to model the composition of the atmosphere of the Earth today and in 1880. Learners assemble the model while measuring percentages.
Learners observe two model atmospheres -- one with normal atmospheric composition and another with an elevated concentration of carbon dioxide.
In this activity, learners play NOAA's Carbon Tracker game and discover ways to keep track of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases in the world.
In this activity, learners create a model using metric measuring tapes and atmosphere composition data.
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.
In this activity, learners investigate carbon sequestration by creating a carbonated beverage out of apple juice and dry ice.
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.
In this activity, learners practice the steps involved in a scientific investigation while learning why ice formations on land (not those on water) will cause a rise in sea level upon melting.
