This well-organized lab activity introduces earth science pupils to the greenhouse effect. They will set up two experiments to monitor temperatures in an open jar, a closed jar, and a closed jar containing water. Ideally, you would have small groups perform their own tests, but if you do not have enough jars with lids, they can be done as a whole-class demonstration. A full-page data table, empty graphs, and analysis questions are all provided to help learners process the data. The instructional activity would make a nice starting point for a unit that addresses global warming and climate change.
Students study the concepts of global warming and climate change as they relate to the levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. They examine the changes in glacial ice in relation to global warming. They decide how human activities, especially the use of cars, contribute to global warming.
Learners study global warming and see how changes in the earth's temperature affect climate.  In this climate lesson students link together the chain of events and what the impact will have on the future. 
In this Global Warming worksheet, students read the article, answer true and false questions, complete synonym matching, complete phrase matching, complete a gap fill, answer short answer questions, answer discussion questions, write, and more about Global Warming. Students complete 10 activities total.
Students explore the concept of global warming. In this climate change lesson, students explore the provided links to PBS NOW sources and research the greenhouse effect and the effects of global warming. Students support their stances on the issues as they write persuasive papers and complete a final project of their choosing.
Students gather information about global warming and climate changes in preparation for future lessons on the Greenhouse Effect.
Students analyze the effect of global warming given a set of data. For this ecology lesson, students evaluate the impact of excess carbon dioxide levels to living things. They watch a video then investigate the major points of the film on carbon dioxide sequestration.
Eighth graders identify the factors that contribute to global warming. In this earth science lesson, 8th graders evaluate the impact of global warming on the planet. They discuss their views within the group.
High schoolers use worksheets, lab activities, and computer animations to explore climate change. In this global warming lesson plan, students experiment to determine carbon dioxide concentrations in various gas mixtures. They use worksheets and flash interactive animations to demonstrate increasing carbon dioxide concentrations in Earth's atmosphere.
Students conduct lab activities, computer visualizations, and other various forms of research in preparation for a role-play activity in which they assume the identities of advisors to various heads of state on the subject of global warming.
Students study global warming by communicating the problem, process and solutions.  In this global instructional activity students use graphs, research and write a critical stance on natural disasters.
Ninth graders investigate whether stronger hurricanes are signs of global warming. In this environmental science lesson, 9th graders research both sides of the issue about global warming. They debate for or against this issue in class.
Students investigate the evidence and consequences of global warming. They read and discuss an article, conduct a debate, evaluate their community's climate statistics, log their gas consumption for a week, and develop a panel discussion on fossil fuels.
Students view video clips and create presentations to illustrate the problems in Alaska related to global warming. In this climate change lesson, students view a Quick-Time video about the consequences of global warming in Alaska. They research an aspect of the problem and present it to the class.
Students explore the effects of global warming. They examine the differences between weather and climate. After viewing a video, students summarize information on climate change and drought.
Incorporate practical writing activities into your earth science curriculum with this colorful resource. Future environmentalists read about global warming in a TIME for Kids production. They answer a few brief questions and then write a summary of another environmental issue that they feel is significant. Not only are youngsters educated about global warming, they also learn what it means to summarize a topic.
Students discuss global warming. For this global warming lesson, students read an article about global warming and list five things they learned. Students work in small groups to compare what they wrote. Students illustrate one of the things they learned. Students write a perusasive paragraph and support their opinion with facts.
Young scholars read information about global warming and make their own greenhouse. For this global warming lesson, students read several pages of global warming and climate information. Young scholars then make their own greenhouse and answer several questions about the topic.
Science learners simulate what happens when ice breaks up and floats on water and how increased pressure on ice causes it to melt faster. They view a clip from the movie, The Day After Tomorrow, and relate their lab activities to what may happen on a global scale as water temperatures increase causing polar ice to break up and melt more quickly. Use this in your earth science class when covering the atmosphere or oceans, or in an environmental science course when instructing on how humans affect the environment. 
Students examine global warming. In this global warming lesson, students identify greenhouse gases and the role humans play in their production.
