Investigating the Climate System: Energy, A Balancing Act

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.
