Students will learn about the natural greenhouse effect and also evaluate the evidence in support of climate change and global warming.
Climate change is an important topic. Students will really enjoy learning about climate change and global warming with these engaging activities. They will learn about the factors that have caused global temperatures to rise over the past century. They will learn about various contributing factors to climate change.
This resource is specially designed to teach the standards
NGSS MS-ESS3-5. Ask questions to clarify evidence of the factors that have caused the rise in global temperatures over the past century.
This resource is also aligned with Utah SEEd standard 8.4.4
Analyze and interpret data on the factors that global temperatures and their on regional climates. Examples of factors could include agricultural activity, changes in solar radiation, fossil fuel use, and volcanic activity. Examples of data could include graphs of the atmospheric levels of gases, seawater levels, ice cap coverage, human activities, and maps of global and regional temperatures. (ESS3.D)
This resource is specially designed to teach from the Earth’s Systems strand.
Students will learn about the carbon cycle and its role in the greenhouse effect. Students will learn about the natural greenhouse effect on how it works within our atmosphere to keep our planet at a relatively steady temperature. Students will also learn that increased greenhouse gases cause an enhanced greenhouse effect that can lead to global warming and climate change.
This resource is packed with activities.
- an informative slideshow
- note-taking guide
- nonfiction passages
- response pages
- interactive notebook flaps
- QR code research
- a hands-on activity/lab
- a quiz
- answers keys
Students will be guided to create an explanation built on evidence. Students will see reputable scientific evidence from organizations like NASA and NOAA. Students will ask questions to clarify evidence.
