Climate change is a major global issue of our time and understanding the main principles of climate science will allow students to better assess information. This exercise allows students to observe and contrast thermal properties of three major greenhouse gases using readily available materials. This activity is appropriate from students between Grades 8-12. Read more for the lesson plan for this activity.
This lesson plan allows students to collect temperature changes over time and see how different greenhouse gases affect temperature. This is a hands-on activity that allows students to witness the effects of greenhouse gases first hand.
