Earth science explorers design an experiment to demonstrate that the albedo of a surface affects its temperature. They test to find out if moisture on the surface affects temperature. They discover whether or not concrete or asphalt heat any differently from natural landscaping. Apply this super series of exercises to your climate change curriculum.

Lesson Planet is a phenomenal resource for finding new ideas and lessons for the classroom. What makes Lesson Planet so unique is that many of the lessons found are complete with worksheets, detailed instructions, and they are aligned to content standards. It is the only lesson resource that I gladly pay for, and it is worth every penny!
