Greenhouse Gas Emission Webquest!
Using the link provided in the PDF, have the students become familiar with the EPA website and how they can attain greenhouse gas information for their city, state, or region. Through this website, you are able to see what the levels are for where you live. This creates a great discussion about what factories or locations exactly are the cause of greenhouse gases in the area.
I have the students choose Michigan and the big Midwest towns as a focus due to the amounts of factories along the Great Lakes that are providing high CO2 and greenhouse gas emissions.
Thanks for considering Middle School Scientists at work!
