Easy supplies, user-friendly lab activity for a human impact on the environment unit or weather unit!
This lab uses easy to obtain supplies and results in dramatic results that clearly demonstrate the greenhouse effect. We have simplified some of the more complicated labs out there to make our lab straightforward and very easy to follow for middle school students. (We also simplified the supplies list!)
Students are given a quick introduction to the greenhouse effect, and then write a hypothesis. They follow the simple procedure (1 class period), and record their results in the data table. Students graph their data on a provided graph, write a conclusion, and answer analysis questions. INCLUDES ANSWER KEY.
