Sublime SublimationAdd to list Details
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
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.
Corals and ChemistryAdd to list Details
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.
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.
Sea Level: On The RiseAdd to list Details
Learners will understand the relationship between climate change and sea-level rise.
Let's Make Molecules
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).
Earth Atmosphere CompositionAdd to list Details
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.
How Greenhouse Gases Absorb HeatAdd to list Details
Learners observe two model atmospheres -- one with normal atmospheric composition and another with an elevated concentration of carbon dioxide.
The Carbon Cycle: Carbon Tracker
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.
Atmosphere Composition ModelAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners create a model using metric measuring tapes and atmosphere composition data.
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.
Capturing Carbon DioxideAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners investigate carbon sequestration by creating a carbonated beverage out of apple juice and dry ice.
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.
Global Climate Change and Sea Level Rise
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.
