The topic of Global Warming is one about which many students have heard, but about which there is great uncertainty in the scientific community. This uncertainty within the scientific community affords us a chance to make decisions based on judgment.
Global Warming lesson plan allows students to use a model to simulate what happens in a greenhouse and may be happening in our environment. It is important for students to understand that this is a model of what may be happening. Scientists use models to try to understand phenomena that are difficult to test in the laboratory or in nature.
