Students study photosynthesis and then transfer their understanding of this topic to a consideration of how trees can help reduce the negative impacts of the greenhouse effect. They explain the role of humans in increasing the greenhouse effect.
Students identify what factors effect global warming and how the greenhouse effect occurs.  In this environmental instructional activity students view videos then complete an experiment using a terrarium to observe greenhouse gas.
Ninth graders create a model of greenhouse effect in the lab. For this integrated science lesson, 9th graders investigate the different variables affecting this condition. They research about global warming and prepare a PowerPoint presentation to share with the class.
Students complete an online simulation of the greenhouse effect. In this lesson on the greenhouse effect, students use a website, similar to a webquest, to simulate and answer questions on how the greenhouse effect works. This lesson is part of a larger unit on climate change.
Young scholars demonstrate the greenhouse effect. They recognize that relatively small changes to our environment can stimulate significant climate changes. They determine that the "scientific method" is a process of testing hypotheses and that global climate changes will affect us far beyond simply warming the outdoor air temperatures. Vocabulary Baseline Carbon dioxide Convection Energy
Students create a model of the greenhouse effect by using bottles sealed with plastic wrap. In this greenhouse effect lesson students set up an experiment by breathing into one bottle and sealing it. The second bottle is simply sealed. Students measure temperature throughout with a TI CBL2 or Vernier Labpro. Charts and guided questions are included to assist students in analyzing their results.
Students explain the greenhouse effect. In this global warming lesson, students participate in an activity where they experience how greenhouses gases work and how they contribute to global warming. Students complete a diagram depicting the greenhouse effect.
Students explore global warming by conducting a weather experiment. In this greenhouse gas instructional activity, students define the greenhouse effect and the impact on our ozone layer. Students utilize a soda pop bottle, floodlight bulb, thermometers and lamp to create the greenhouse effect inside their classroom, recording their observations afterwards.
Why does it get so hot inside of our cars in the summertime? The greenhouse effect! Lab groups experiment to see what happens to an ice cube enclosed in a jar and placed in sunlight as compared to an ice cube outside of the jar. They record the corresponding temperatures as the experiment proceeds. They relate their findings to actual data on the increased carbon dioxide concentration in our atmosphere. It would be beneficial to provide atmospheric temperatures for the same time period to make the connection more obvious. Overall, this is a terrific lesson plan on a foundational topic.
Tenth graders conduct an investigation that models the greenhouse effect. Activities include conducting library and/or Internet research on the topic of global warming to collect current scientific evidence.
Students gather information about the Greenhouse Effect and participate in a debate about the merits of this theory on both sides. They explore the Greenhouse Effect, and its possible long-term effects, from a variety of resources.
Learners investigate the greenhouse effect and why it happens.
Students explore the greenhouse effect. They set up a simplified model of the earth and the greenhouse effect. Students compare temperatures inside a jar to temperatures outside the jar. Pupils collect information and create a line graph. They draw conclusions about how an envelope of greenhouse gases is affecting the earth.
Students investigate the greenhouse effect. For this environmental lesson, students investigate why the greenhouse effect changes the climate through an experiment. Students use vinegar to simulate how acid damages the environment.
Students compare 4 different form of carbon dioxide and discuss the role that carbon dioxide has in the Greenhouse Effect. They then understand that the Greenhouse Effect is a naturally occurring event.
Seventh graders investigate the temperature change in open and closed containers. In this earth science lesson, 7th graders relate this lab activity to greenhouse effect. They create a line graph from data collected in the experiment.
In this environmental instructional activity, students read the sheet that is about the greenhouse effect. They examine possible solutions to the problem.
Students work in small groups to study the various aspects of global weather and discuss the possibility of a Greenhouse Effect.
Eighth graders research the Greenhouse Effect on the Internet. They use a variety of sources and take notes on the topic. They use ClarisWorks to type a report, use spellcheck, proof and edit. They can create a class bulletin board.
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 lesson plan would make a nice starting point for a unit that addresses global warming and climate change.
