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).
