Climate change is a highly integrated process that is regulated by both positive and negative feedback loops. This worksheet provides detailed explanations of seven phenomenon and will allow students to determine how feedback loops impact climate change. At the beginning of the worksheet, students are introduced to the topic of feedback loops through illustrations and explanations of both positive and negative feedback loops. This resource helps students work towards achieving the NGSS-HS-ESS2-2, which states "analyze geoscience data to make the claim that one change to Earth's surface can create feedbacks that cause changes to other Earth systems" (NGSS Lead States, 2013).

NGSSHS-ESS2-2
Analyze geoscience data to make the claim that one change to Earth’s surface can create feedbacks that cause changes to other Earth systems. Examples should include climate feedbacks, such as how an increase in greenhouse gases causes a rise in global temperatures that melts glacial ice, which reduces the amount of sunlight reflected from Earth’s surface, increasing surface temperatures and further reducing the amount of ice. Examples could also be taken from other system interactions, such as how the loss of ground vegetation causes an increase in water runoff and soil erosion; how dammed rivers increase groundwater recharge, decrease sediment transport, and increase coastal erosion; or how the loss of wetlands causes a decrease in local humidity that further reduces the wetland extent.
